    Dev Anand: Bollywood’s greatest discoverer

    The late Dev Anand had a career spanning around six decades, during which he donned several hats including those of director, producer and actor. There is one more lesser known aspect: casting director. Though you may not find him mentioned as such in the credits of his films, several B-Town actors will tell you they are grateful to him for bringing them into the industry.

    Dev Anand (1923-2011): A legend moves on

    The news of Dev Anand’s death has shocked his legion of fans in and out of the Bollywood film industry
