  • Mehmood Junior joined the film industry at the tender age of 9 and in his school, he used to enact and imitate different actors. He would also deliver special performances in his school functions.
  • His older brother used to do still photography on film sets, which made him curious to see the shooting environment. Hence, he used to accompany his brother to the sets occasionally.
  • One day, when he accompanied his brother on the sets of a Hindi film titled ‘Kitna Nazuk Hai Dil,’ Mehmood Jr. saw a child artist struggling to speak a one-liner dialogue. Mehmood Jr. was standing behind the director’s chair and said

    Itni si line nahi bol sakta, aagaya acting karne.” (He can’t even say these few lines and he wants to be an actor)

    Hearing Mehmood Jr’s words, the director of the film asked him if he could speak those lines. He recited the lines of the scene. Impressed by Mehmood’s performance, the director cast him in the film. However, the film was never released.

  • While he was shooting for the Hindi film titled ‘Suhaag Raat’ (1968), the entire cast of the film was invited to Mehmood’s (deceased) daughter’s birthday party except for Mehmood Jr. He felt bad about it and said to Mehmood,

    Mera baap koi producer, director nahi isliye main aap ki beti ke birthday main nahi aa sakta kya?”

    He further added that if he came to the party, he would dance to Mehmood’s song titled ‘Hum kale hai toh kya hua dilwale hain.’ Listening to this, Mehmood invited Mehmood Jr. to the party, where Mehmood Jr. gave a dance performance on Mehmood’s song and everyone loved it. After the party, Mehmood told Mehmood Jr.’s father to bring him to Ranjit studios and after they went there, Mehmood Ali made him his shishya (disciple) by tying a ganda (a sacred thread) on his arm, and gave him the name ‘Mehmood Junior.’ Mehmood Jr. also tied the thread on Mehmood Ali’s arm and gave him five rupees and 25 paise as Dakshina (offering).

  • Mehmood Jr. was one of the 12 owners who owned imported cars in the 1970’s.
