Remembering comedy king Rangeela on 90th birth anniversary
Legendary Lollywood comedian Saeed Khan Rangeela was born today in 1937.
The actor worked in over 300 films throughout his career and is regarded as the king of comedy in Pakistan. So much so that many believe the country has not produced a talent like Saeed.
That is true because he was definitely one of a kind. On his 90th birth anniversary, we remember the legend that left this world 13 years ago, but his work continues to inspire people and will inspire generations to come.
Government of Pakistan pays tribute to the legend
Saeed Khan Rangeela, one of the finest comedians, director, producer and writer of Pakistan film industry’s history is remembered on his birth anniversary today. Rangeela was not only a superb comedian but also an intellectual who knew the art of film-making inside-out.
