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

    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
    Dev Anand was rightly called the evergreen hero, and not just because of his long tenure as leading man. While he played the quintessential hero onscreen with his unique style and mannerisms, offscreen too he had an approach to life that was highly inspirational. It has often been said that he actually lived the way one of his songs advocated – har fikr ko dhue mein udaata chala gaya (I moved on, letting my worries go up in smoke). He had many classics to his name – Guide, CID, Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Gambler, Hum Dono – and yet never stopped making films. He wanted to die with his boots on, and that’s what he did. 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

    What do Dev Anand’s kids do?

    What do Dev Anand’s kids do?

    Suneil Anand and Devina are always far away from the spotlight that keeps their father
    If you have very successful parents, it is next to impossible to match up to their standards. Most star kids are not able to measure up to super dad or super mom’s guts and glory. Some don’t even want to go there. Case in point – Abhishek Bachchan, Kumar Gaurav, Randhir Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor, Boy Mukherjee, Puru Rajkumar, Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Pratibha Sinha, Nitin Mukesh, Amit Kumar, Aditya Raj Kapoor, to name just a few. Dev Anand’s children – a son and a daughter – are no different. Click here to read more

    Dev Anand passes away in London due to cardiac arrest

    Dev Anand passes away in London due to cardiac arrest

    Evergreen star Dev Anand, one of the icons of Indian cinema, died Saturday after suffering a massive cardiac arrest in London. He was 88. “His son Sunil came out of the bathroom and saw that Dev saab was not responding. He called the doctor, who said that he had a heart attack. He died at 10 in the night in London,” said Mohan Churiwala, Dev Anand’s manager. The iconic star is survived by his wife, former actor Kalpana Karthik, a son and a daughter. As soon as the news spread, a grief-stricken Bollywood offered condolences and recalled his significant contribution to cinema. While Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan said an “era has come to an end”, actor Shabana Azmi said the legend “will be missed by millions but will live on through his movies”. And live he will through his movies, as he starred in some ahead-of-its-time films like Guide. Dev Anand began his career with Hum Ek Hain in 1946. However, he got his first big break with Ziddi in 1948. The flamboyant star is also known for giving big hits like Baazi, Guide, Jewel Thief, Johnny Mera Naam, Hare Rama Hare Krishna, CID and Tere Mere Sapne. His last outing as an actor and director was Chargesheet in 2011, a dud at the box office. Dev Anand will be cremated in London next week.

    Dharam Dev Anand (September 26, 1923-December 3, 2011): The legend passes away

    Dharam Dev Anand (September 26, 1923-December 3, 2011): The legend passes away

    Actor-filmmaker Dev Anand passed away on Saturday night following a cardiac arrest in London, imprinting his footprints in the entertainment world forever…
    Known for his evergreen aura, Dharam Dev Anand has perhaps being the most prolific and versatile member of the Bollywood fraternity. Treating age just like any other figure, Dev saab’s contribution to the industry will be remembered forever. Movies like Guide and Gambler have been such huge blockbusters that the actor was given sobriquets like ‘Raju guide’ and ‘the great gambler’. He was also honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2002. The actor apparently liked to be on his own. He believed that an artiste has to isolate himself so that he can focus on his work. Sticking to his ideology, the actor preferred leading a simple life and never ruled out the possibility of falling in love again. Trudging through quite an interesting and long journey, from his first movie Hum Ek Hain (1946) to the last one Chargesheet (2011), this legend and his enthusiasm to work and live life to the fullest, will be missed.
