Definition

Sobriquet describing Dharmendra, the he-man actor of the last century (wow!) in what was then simply Bombay. Much of the slang in the Angrezi-Hindi mix goes back to the days when Stardust magazine began to popularize a distinctive style by developing a pidgin that has come to define the evolving diction of young India.

Usage

"Remember Garam Dharam? Big B was his sidekick in the first movie in which they acted together, if you can imagine Big B as a sidekick."
