Because I mentioned him a lot a couple of posts ago, some people told me they couldn’t recall having seen him in any films, and he popped up prominently when I was viewing my favorite Shamshad Begum songs as well as the new upload of Mirza Sahiban… I have decided to post several favorite songs that either starred or featured Gope. In the last two songs here, he is just an onlooker, but a very distinctive one. For those who don’t know, you can spot him by looking for the heaviest fellow in the clip – who is also often the funniest. But he was a fairly convincing villain, too…

P.S. Reading a little about Gope, I learned that he was born in Sindh. I looked for Gope performing “Lal Meri Pat,” but alas, no such luck.
