About Chandra Mohan Watal

Chandra Mohan (1905-1949) was an Indian film actor, known for his work in Hindi cinema in the 1930s and 1940s. Born in Narsinghpur in Madhya Pradesh, he was known for his large grey eyes, voice modulation and dialog delivery. His eyes form the opening sequence in V. Shantaram's 1934 film Amrit Manthan. Mohan later appeared as Emperor Jehangir in Sohrab Modi's Pukar , as Randhir Singh in Mehboob Khan's Humayun, and as Seth Dharamdass, in Mehboob Khan's Roti. His last appearance was in Ramesh Saigal's 1948 film Shaheed. As Rai Bahadur Dwarka Nath, he played father to Ram, who was portrayed by Dilip Kumar. Mohan's character in this film initially supports the British Government but later favors the Freedom Struggle.

The famous role of King Akbar played by Prithvi Raj Kapoor in 'Mughal-e-Azam' was at first given to Chandramohan, who left the world leaving the film halfway.
