a mother could love, Jeevan was one of the top bad guys of 60s, 70s, and 80s
Bollywood cinema. However Jeevan has been an actor in Hindi cinema since the mid
1930s and his parts were not just confined to villains but mythological and
comedy characters as well. In an film career that spanned over 50 years Jeevan
worked in well over 300 movies.
