Pankaj plays Bishan Singh who hasn't slept in 15 years and forever murmurs “Upar di gur gur di annexe di bedhiyana di moong di daal of di lalten.”
Bishan Singh, played by Pankaj Kapur, is a man who hasn’t slept or sat in 15 years. He bathes only when he feels he shall have a visitor.
Interestingly, Pankaj has also contributed to the script of Happi. The black and white movie has been directed by Bhavna Talwar.
Drawing inspiration from acclaimed writer Saadat Hasan Manto's works, filmmaker Ketan Mehta made Toba Tek Singh with Pankaj Kapur in the lead.
