He moved to Lahore at a young age and earned his livelihood by painting billboards for the Pakistani film industry. His career formally started at the age of 21 from a Punjabi feature film Jatti (1958). Rangeela started to do comedy roles after this movie and soon became one of the most sought after comedians in the Lollywood. The film Diya Aur Toofan (1969 film) was Rangeela’s directional debut. The song ‘Gaa Mere Manwa Gaata Ja Re’, which is still fresh in the memories of the music-lovers, was sung by Rangeela himself and it featured in the same movie.—INP
