In Bollywood, the most prolific film industry in the world, Dharam Singh Deol — known as Dharmendra — is one of Indian cinema’s biggest-ever stars. Nicknamed ‘Action King’ for his roles in action film, he was perhaps the world’s single most popular film star, in terms of sheer audience numbers, from 1960 to the late 1990s. He has appeared in almost 100 hit films throughout his career, contributi­ng to the rising popularity of Indian films in other parts of the world from the mid-1970s onwards.
