Bollywood's he-man of the 1960s, Dara Singh, who was hospitalized recently after a cardiac arrest, is still in a critical condition. Doctors attending the veteran said he is on ventilator and extremely critical.

Dara Singh, who was born in 1928 in Dharmoochak in Amritsar district of Punjab began as a wrestler but soon became a popular actor in Indian cinema and played several roles opposite yesteryear's actresses like Mumtaz in the 1960s.

He played in films like KING KONG, which were inspired by Hollywood movies. He had a successful career in television also and was a popular face in many of the TV serials since the 1980s. But with the role of Hanuman in Ramayan on TV, he reached every household.

His films in the 1960s included TOOFAN (1969), JAWAN MARD (1966), THAKUR JARNAIL SINGH (1966), BOXER (1965), HUM SAB USTAD HAIN (1965), KHAKAAN (1965), LUTERA (1965), MAHABHARAT (1965, played Bheem), RAAKA (1965), RUSTOM-E-HIND (1965), SHER DIL (1965), SIKANDAR E AZAM (1965), TARZAN AND KING KONG (1965), TARZAN COMES TO DELHI (1965), TEEN SARDAR (1965), AANDHI AUR TOOFAN (1964) and many more.

We wish the veteran star a speedy recovery.
