He is the indisputable comedy king in Indian cinema; any doubts? Born as John Rao, Johhny Lever, an artist who is entertaining us for decades now, started off with comedy rather accidentally. His father was an operator at Hindustan Lever Ltd. Plant. Johnny couldn’t continue education after seventh standard due to finanial crisis and did odd jobs to earn few pennies. One day during a function at HLL, he was mimicking a few artistes. Amazed at his talent, the workers renamed his Johnny Lever. He is also one of the first stand-up comedians of india. He has received many awards so far, including two Filmfare Awards.
