We all remember him as Frooti's dad in Son Pari but before all that happened, Vivek Mushran had arrived on the Bollywood scene with a great flourish. He was a Subhash Ghai discovery and was paired with another newbie Manisha Koirala in his first film Saudagar. That released in 1991 and people who have seen the 90s, still remember him as the Ilu ilu boy. What's that you ask? Well, it was the time when India was learning a lot of heart-fluttering terms through movies. It's short for I Love You and was one of the most loved songs from 90s.
