Belonging to the Canadian-Afghan origins, he was not only talented but also quite intelligent.

Amitabh Bachchan shared a tweet for his well-being a few days ago, telling the public that he used to teach math. And indeed, he had been a professor of Civil Engineering in M. H. Saboo Siddik College of Engineering, Mumbai.

We all know what an amazing actor he was and have seen quite a lot of him on screen. His off-screen achievements, however, have remained hidden more often than not.
