Guggu Gill is one of the evergreen actors of Punjabi cinema. He was inspired from the style of Pakistani Actor Sultan Rahi in his acting. Of course, Guggu Gill has always admitted his admiration for Late Pakistani Actor(Sultan Rahi) but not many people know that he is also a fan of Pakistani Actress Anjuman, who formed a successful pairing with Sultan Rahi. It is a known fact that some of Guggu Gill’s initial films were inspired from Pakistani films.
So Guggu would often watch Pakistani films of his favourite artists. His craze for Anjuman’s beauty and dances was such that he named his mare (Ghodi) as Anjuman. Also Read : Read How Actor Yograj Singh Turned Director With ‘Jatt Punjab Daa’!
