Bollywood actor of Australian origin, Bob Christo, who acted in numerous movies playing the white-skinned baddie for over two decades, passed away here on Sunday. He was in his seventies.

The actor died of "rupture of left ventricle free valve", reports said.

Robert John Christo, popularly known as Bob Christo, was an engineer but went on to become an actor in Bollywood, playing the quintessential White villain of Bollywood.

His bald face and sinewy physique soon made him a popular action villain whom the heroes would fight and vanquish after a lot of effort.

He began career in the late 1970s and had featured in a famous fight sequence against Amitabh Bachchan in the 1978-blockbuster DON, but got a major break in 1980 with the film ABDULLAH made by actor Sanjay Khan.

He did not look back since as almost every film drafted him in action scenes.

Bob had worked in over 200 films in Hindi and other Indian languages. He played the villainous British officer in many films and took all the beating in films like MR INDIA.

In the United States, he used to work as a visiting professor at premier business schools.

During later stage of his life, he worked as a Yoga instructor in Bangalore.
