The most popular being Raj Kapoor. He fashioned his character based off Charlie Chaplin and his movies and songs were awesome for the people in India back then. Indian Bollywood films were also very popular in Singapore back then, and still is today perhaps.
When I watched this clip from the film Hujan Panas where you have P. Ramlee singing and dancing on stage, he totally reminded me of Charlie Chaplin. All 3 of these men are very inspiring. Their works live on till today.
Movie: Hujan Panas (1953)
Movie: Awaara (1952)
