Navin Nischol is a popular Indian actor. He made his debut with the Hindi film `Sawan Bhadon` in 1970, which became a box office hit. He was the first gold medalist from the Film and Television Institute of India to make it big. He starred in several superhits, including `Victoria No. 203` (1972) and `Dhund` (1973). At one time, he was popularly known as the "poor man's Rajesh Khanna" - an allusion to his being an inferior copy of the much-more-in-demand Rajesh Khanna. Later on, Nischol switched over to character roles and carved out a successful career for himself in television. One of his most successful serials on television was "Dekh Bhai Dekh", co-starring Sushma Seth, Shekhar Suman and Farida Jalal. He also starred in the Punjabi films `Aasra Pyar Da` (1983) and `Mahaul Theek Hai` (1999).
