The film’s starcast included Jeetendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Rekha, Moon Moon Sen and Mandakini in the lead roles. He got a lot of praise for his role in Rajiv Mehra’s directorial ‘Pyar Ke Do Pal’ where Poonam Dhillon and Mithun Chakraborty were the lead actors. Pal, who mainly did negative roles on-screen, shared screen space with superstars like Vinod Khanna, Anil Kapoor, and Dharmendra in films like ‘Kasam’ and ‘Farishtey’.
The late actor’s daughter Geeta Kaur, “He was suffering from liver cirrhosis from a long time, and was bedridden. That’s also why he was out of work. Some people from the industry had come for his funeral, but I don’t know who they were, I don’t even know their names. He was 76-year-old. We had lost our mother a long time back.”
