About Moolchand

Moolchand was a prolific character actor in Hindi and Panjabi cinema who was active from 1951 to his death in the late-80s. He appeared in over 250 films. These films spanned the parallel cinema of Guru Dutt to the wrestler films of Dara Singh. He is known for his big girth.

The first known appearance of Moolchand is in 1951. That same year he also appeared in another film. These two films would correspond to two steady sources of film roles for Moolchand in their directors Guru Dutt and Raj Kapoor. Moolchand would go on to work in 5 more Guru Dutt films and 7 more Raj Kapoor films. Other supportive film people include Dev Anand, B. R. Chopra, Dara Singh and I. S. Johar who featured him in most of their movies.

Most of Moolchand's early roles were small ones. He only began to get significant roles in the 1960s. Padosan (1968) where he plays the servant of Om Prakash's character featured a lot of close-ups of Moolchand and showed him to be an able comedic side actor. This comedic side would be further explored in the 1970s with a scene stealing appearance in Yaadon Ki Baarat with fellow fatman Ram Avtar as a tortured businessman and in Don as the village medicine man who dances with Amitabh and beckons Zeenat Aman to participate. Little is known about Moolchand outside of his film work. The 1988 release Tamacha credits him as 'Late Moolchand'.
