A just interpretation of a musical legend is rare to come by but Rami Malek was up to the task. The recent film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, recounts the life story of Freddie Mercury, the front man of the rock group,Queen.

Freddie Mercury wasn’t always Freddie Mercury. Born Farrokh Bulsara in Tanzania to Pakistani parents, he set off to London just after he turned 16 years old. The rest that followed we know already. In 2002 he landed the 58th place in the top 100 famous British people. While the Rolling Stone magazine gave him a top place in the list of the greatest singers of all time. Sufferer of Aids, the British musician died following pneumonia on 24 November 1991. He had only publicly announced that he was a carrier of the virus the day before he died.
