With the demise of Dilip Kumar, we saw the end of an golden era of Bollywood. While many celebs paid tribute to the late legend on social media, popular TV actor Mohsin Khan of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame got emotional as his dream of meeting Dilip Kumar has remained unfulfilled. A few months ago, the actor had posted a picture, where he attempted to create an iconic look of the Qila actor and wrote, ‘Someday I’ll meet my idol!’
In earlier interviews, the actor had revealed that he looks up to Dilip Kumar and Raj Kumar. He went on to say that he used to take up acting lessons by Dilip Kumar's films, especially drunk scenes from Devdas. Talking to BT, Mohsin said, “Dilip sahab’s entire life has been an inspiration. There’s so much to learn from his life, his interviews, his speeches, his book ‘Dilip Kumar: The Substance and the Shadow’ — all his work is so inspiring. May the doors of heaven welcome him. He has always been in my prayers and may lord give strength to Dilip sahab’s family. I wish I had got a chance to meet him, but all the work that he has done and his book will always keep him alive in our hearts.”
In the morning, a tweet was posted from his Twitter to share the news of his demise, which reads, “With a heavy heart and profound grief, I announce the passing away of our beloved Dilip saab a few minutes ago. We are from God and to him we return (sic).”
