The character Gabbar Singh, was modelled on a real-life dacoit of the same name, who had menaced the villages around Gwalior, in the 1950s. Any policeman captured by the real Gabbar Singh had his ears and nose cut off, and was released as a warning to other policemen. The character was also influenced by the villain "El Indio" (played by Gian Maria Volonté) of Sergio Leone's 'For A Few Dollars More' (1965). Read More
