    Waheeda Rehman: I couldn’t meet Dev one last time

    The ethereal Waheeda Rehman missed the opportunity to meet her co-star Dev Anand one last time, but fondly remembers him as a good producer. She, however, feels in recent times he got too involved with himself
    “Without meaning any disrespect to him, I’d like to say that as the years went by Dev’s script sense went more and more haywire. I think he got too involved with himself. Dev was a very good producer. But he needed to look out for better scripts,” said Waheeda.  Click here to read more

    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

He had begun planning his next film, along the lines of his classic Hare Rama Hare Krishna. Sadly, Fate had other plans. We pay our tribute to this iconic filmmaker: Click here to read more
