The year was 1995 when Rakesh Roshan's reincarnation action-drama 'Karan Arjun' starring Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Mamta Kulkarni, Rakhee Gulzar, Amrish Puri, and Ranjeet hit the screens and became an instant blockbuster.

Galti mhare se ho gayi (I have made a mistake)
The only good thing about this song was Ila Arun.
5. Amrish Puri as a villain
What fun is a weak villain who isn't an equal match for the hero? Amrish Puri, just like everything else he did, excelled as the sadistic baddie in the movie.
So much so that you will think he is a
