Before WWE, before the padded rings and beyond boxing – there were pehelwans (wrestlers). These gigantic and humble men with elephant-like appetites can rightfully be called the real-ironmen.
During 1950s everybody backed King-Kong and just as he thought DS had given up , the latter picked Kong from his neck and dramatically choke-held him in the air, eventually making him scream for help. The referee intervened and DS literally threw Kong out of the ring and claimed the title.
DS was a successful actor, member of the upper-house and a revered figure for his role as Hanuman in Sagar’s Ramayana –serial.
