An Interview from Johnny Walker

Johnny Walker (11 November 1926 – 29 July 2003) is the screen name of an Indian movie comedian, who acted in around 300 movies. He was born as Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi in Indore, British India, the son of a mill worker. After moving to Mumbai, he worked as a conductor in BEST buses.

His first screen test consisted of acting as a drunk which he did it so well that Guru Dutt gave him the screen name Johnny Walker after the famous Scotch whisky brand. Even though he’s remembered for playing “drunk” characters, he was a thorough teetotaler.
