Feroz Khan was born in India to an Afghan father and an Iranian mother. His schooling was in Bangalore, whre he picked up a heavy accent. In 1960, he began his film career as the second lead in the movie ‘Didi’. For the next few years, he was confined to enacting supporting roles. He mostly starred in low-budget thrillers and was paired opposite mediocre actresses. His first major commercial success came with ‘Oonche Log’ in 1965. his acting received critical acclaim with his portrayal of a romantic jilted lover in Aarzoo. In 1969, he won the Filmfare Award for Best Actor in a Supporting role for Aadmi aur Insaan. Still, the roles of the main lead were still eluding him.

At that time, to improve his career prospects, he forayed into production and direction. In 1975 he directed his first film ‘Dharmatma’ that was loosely based on the Hollywood classic Godfather. This was his first hit as the leading man. The hugest success in his career is Qurbani (1980). In this film he also introduced the melodious Pakistani singer with a lovely voice, Nazia Hasan.

After Yalgaar in 1993 he took a hiatus from acting, and concentrated on directing and producing films. He launched thee film career of his ravishingly handsome son Fardeen Khan with ‘Prem Aggan’ in 1998 but the film bombed at the box office.

Personal Life:

Feroz Khan married Sundari in 1965. he fathered two children with her, Laila and Fardeen Khan. But after 20 years of marriage in 1985, he divorced his wife. His son recently married Natasha Madhwani, the daughter of Feroz Khan’s occasional on-screen costar Mumtaz.

Feroz Khan is famous for his flamboyant style of dressing. His movies were usually extensions of his outlandish personal style, often almost crossing the boundaries of decency due to erotic content and skimpy Western clothes worn by the women in those films.
During a recent visit to Pakistan, for promoting the film Taj Mahal directed by his brother Akbar Khan, he got involved in a controversy due to his fracas with a Pakistani delegate. He was accused of abusing the people and the Government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Pakistan's President General Pervez Musharraf banned his entrance in Pakistan by black listing him for this behavior.
