One of Pakistan's most well-known actors, Sultan Rahi, was remembered for his massive role in Pakistani cinema on Wednesday, his 22nd death anniversary.

Some of his mega hits include Maula Jatt, Sher Khan, Chan Veryam, Kaley Chore, Godfather, Basheeraa and Wehsi Gujjar.

His films were marked with diamond, platinum and silver jubilee awards.

The actor was murdered in 1996 while travelling from Lahore to Islamabad by robbers who tried to rob him and his friends. He was 58 years old at the time of his death.
