Who is her father Sanjay?
Indian actor, producer and director Shah Abbas Ali Khan Tanoli, perhaps known better as Sanjay Khan, was born in Bangalore, British India on 3 January 1941, making Capricorn his zodiac sign. He has 43 acting, eight producing and nine directing credits, and is perhaps still known best for producing all 103 episodes of the 2002 historical series “1857 Kranti”, which starred Maya Alagh and Tej Sapru, and follows the 1857 Indian Revolt.
Sanjay was raised alongside his two sisters and five brothers in Bangalore, by their Persian immigrant mother Bibi Fatima Begum from Iran, and Afghan immigrant father Sadiq Ali Khan Tanoli; Sanjay’s older brother was famous actor Feroz Khan, who died aged 69 on 27 April 2009.
Sanjay was 12 when he watched Raj Kapoor’s movie “Awaara” at the cinema, and after the manager of the cinema took him to the projection room and explained how movies are made, Sanjay fell in love with acting. He studied at Cambridge School in New Delhi, India and upon matriculating in 1959 moved to Mumbai and joined Bollywood.
At the age of 12, Sanjay Khan was taken to a theatre to see Raj Kapoor's 'Awaara' and was mesmerised by the film….
Sanjay’s debut film role was playing Pilot in the 1962 action adventure “Tarzan Goes to India”, and some of his following roles were in the popular 1964 family musical movie “Dosti”, the 1964 musical war action “Haqeeqat” and the 1966 musical comedy “Dus Lakh”. In 1969, he played the lead character Amar Kumar in the popular musical family movie “Ek Phool Do Mali”, which also starred Balraj Sahni and Sadhana Shivdasani, and was directed by Devendra Doel. The movie follows widowed mother Leela as she’s raising her daughter Somna in the mountainous region of India, and the film was nominated for one award.
Some of Sanjay’s most notable performances in the ‘70s were perhaps in the 1971 drama “Chingari”, the 1973 romantic drama “Daaman Aur Aag”, and the 1977 action “Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam”. The year 1980 saw him star as Emir-e-Rajasthan Sheikh Mohammed Al Qamal in the romantic action “Abdullah”, which he also directed; it follows the life of devout Muslim Abdullah, and the film was nominated for only a single award.
Sanjay’s since had only three roles: he played Raja in the 1986 family movie “Kala Dhanda Goray Log”, an unnamed character in the 2016 series “Spices & Secrets with Zarine Khan”, and another unnamed character in the 2022 comedy movie “TFTNW”.
He’s won only a single award: a 2009 Screen Lifetime Achievement Award.
