When Boman Irani was impressed by Dev Anand

The legendary actor-filmmaker has passed away but has left behind many memories which people will fondly recall

Boman Irani is one of those people who has worked with Dev Anand and been completely impressed by his courteous behaviour. On attaining a legendary status, people tend to bloat a bit but Dev saab wasn’t like that. The Don 2 actor recalled an incident that occurred while he was shooting for the legend’s film Mr Prime Minister. He told a daily newspaper, “I remember one day’s shoot got cancelled. Instead of just saying a random ‘sorry’, Dev saab got someone to send flowers to my room for the cancellation.” Wethinks it is small but genuine gestures like this one which add to his legend. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
