Sood was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan’s 2014 film ‘Happy New Year’ along with Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan.

Singh, who has to his credit one of the most exciting fights in the history of wrestling, passed away in 2012. Singh had once lifted the almost-200kg King Kong of Australia over his head and twirled him around. Later, Singh was also seen in films like ‘Dillagi’, ‘Ajooba’ and ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’.
