Bio: Joginder (real name Joginder Shelly) was an Indian actor, director, producer, writer, singer, songwriter and distributor. Two Hindi films produced–directed–written–acted–distributed by him were "Super Hits" – Bindiya aur Bandook and Ranga Khush. (In Indian cinema any film which runs for over 50 weeks continuously is classified as "Super Hit.") He successfully instituted a plagiarism suit against the producers of one of India's greatest films Sholay for substantially copying his work. The character Ranga Khush was a household name in India in the 1970s, especially among little children who copied his maniacal laugh and rolling eyeballs, and favourably compares with Gabbar Singh who copied him.[citation needed] The film Ranga Khush was a spinoff from Joginder's two-word dialogue in Bindiya aur Bandook (known internationally as "The girl with the gun").
