Rehman in 1949 film Sanwariya
Rehman in 1949 film Sanwariya

Said Rehman Khan was born on 23 June 1921 at Lahore, British India, in a Pashtun origin family. He graduated from Robertson College Jabalpur.
After college (1942) he joined the Royal Indian Air Force and trained at Poona as a pilot. Air Force didn't appeal to him and soon left for a career in films at Bombay. His movie career started with a job as third assistant director to Vishram Bedekar at the studios in Pune. Vishram needed an Afghan who could tie a Pushtun turban on one of his characters. Rehman could do that being a Pushtun, and that brought him to the screen for some lead roles.
