Meezaan shares a throwback picture with grandfather Jagdeep, pays homage to the veteran actor with a cute childhood picture


Veteran comedian Jagdeep passed away last night at the age of 81. A popular comic actor, he breathed life into his roles and regaled everyone with his sense of humour onscreen. Also known for his iconic role of Soorma Bhopali in Sholay, Jagdeep’s demise is mourned by his colleagues, friends, fans and family.

Today, Jagdeep’s grandson Meezaan (son of Jaaved Jaaferi) took to Instagram to post a throwback photo of the legend. He kept the caption simple and refrained from voicing any thoughts. He only shared a black heart emoji depicting his grief on losing his beloved grandfather.
