Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria aka Sudhir (1944 – 12 May 2014) was a Bollywood film actor. He was best known for his role in the film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan.[1][2][3] He acted in over 200 films in a career spanning from 1962 to 2009.[4] He was one of Bollywood’s best known baddies from the 1970s through to the 1990s.

He would usually play the second-in-command sidekick to villains Ajit, Premnath and Pran or the torturous police inspector or a sleazy man. He was most known for his shrill voice, long moustache and sideburns. He starred in at least a dozen Amitabh Bachchan movies, such as Satte Pe Satta and Shaan. His biggest claim to fame was probably in Feroz Khan's 1974 hit Khote Sikkay, as the handicapped thief in Dev Anand's Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971) and in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Baadshah (1999). His recent and last film appearances were in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) and Victoria House (2009). He was also filmmaker Milan Luthria's paternal uncle. He died on 12 May 2014 at the age of 70.
