Jagdeep - Our Soorma Bhopali

Jagdeep was born on 29 March 1939 in Datiya, India. His name was Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jaffery.
But we know him as Jagdeep. He had always made us laugh. During the partition of India, he came to Mumbai. At that time he was just 6-7 years old. His father got died, so his mother looked after him. His mother was working in an orphanage. Jagdeep thought that he would also do some work so he started making kites. He sold soaps. One day a man came who was searching for children who could work in films. Then he saw Jagdeep and asked him to do work in films/movies but at that time Jagdeep was not known about anything, but the man said he would give him money for this so Jagdeep got ready.
He reached to the studio with his mother. His role was that he had to sit quite like an audience. A play was going on. Suddenly an Urdu dialogue came and nobody was able to speak then Jagdeep shouted and said that he would speak this dialogue.
After this, he came in so many movies. He acted as a hero also. He worked as Soorma Bhopali in the movie Sholay and that character was immortal. He had children from his first wife Naseem Begum named as Hussain, Shakira, Shafi, and Suraiya . Two more sons named as, Naved Jaffery and Javed Jaffery.
Jagdeep died on 8 July 2020 at the age of 81 years. We will miss you, Jagdeep Ji.
