Meera Deosthale

It was heartbreaking to know Dilip Saab is no more. He was an actor par excellence.  We used to watch his films on TV with family. He was my parents favourite actor. I loved his Karma, Saudagar and even Kranti.  His dialogue delivery and expressions reflected his craft. He will be missed. He lived a content life and had a perfect life partner in Saira Banu who cared for her. Such an amazing career graph Dilip Saab had. There will be no Dilip Kumar again. He is irreplaceable and will live through his films.

India woke up to the news of the sad demise of legendary actor Dilip Kumar. He was not just a legend, but a learning institution in himself. Watching his movies have made me become the actor I am today. His work and his movies are an informal training of acting and I am sure he must have inspired many actors in one way or the other. It’s so difficult to pick one movie of his, but I have loved Mughal-e-Azam, Ram Aur Shyam, and Devdas.

Shobhit Johri

Dilip Kumar was and will always be an institution in himself. He represented an era of Hindi film industry. Nobody can comment on his contribution, it’s simply immeasurable. He was known as the tragedy king. Naya Daur is my favourite movie. Nobody can touch his level of finesse in acting.

Mrunal Jain

I loved Dilip Kumar in the films such as Aadmi and Bairaag. He is my father’s favourite actor too. I will watch his film today for sure. I couldn’t meet Dilip Saab in this lifetime but I have seen most of his films and have seen how articulate he was in tragic scenes. He is and will always be my inspiration.

Sneh Binny

Dilip Kumar ji has contributed enormously to the Hindi film industry. I can’t believe that he is no more. He was a legend in the true sense of the term. There is so much that we all have learnt from him. My favourite Dilip Kumar film is Devdas.

Ashish Srivastav

He was one of the greatest actors of Hindi cinema. Dilip Kumar has inspired and will continue to inspire actors in more ways than one. I liked every film of Dilip sahab but the ones closest to my heart are Mashal and Shakti. He will always remain the face of the Indian cinema, may his soul rest in peace.

Vijayendra Kumeria

Dilip Kumar is one actor who has been an inspiration to all newcomers and even megastars we have in our industry now.  I have seen his movies and always loved the fact that he used to look the part every single time. Whether a village boy or a businessman or a cop or a gangster, he was convincing in everything he did.  His star status never overshadowed his performance. His body language and significant pauses during dialogue delivery were awesome. I have tried to learn from him that acting is not just about delivering lines, it’s also about those correct pauses0. I love watching his films Shakti and Ram Aur Shyam. May his soul rest in peace.

Chandni Soni

Dillip Saab’s demise is like the end of an era in Indian cinema. His contribution to Hindi film industry has been tremendous and his work has been appreciated internationally as well. The kind of sincerity which he would put into any role is something.
I really admired about him. With twinkling eyes and charming smile he conquered the world. Mughal-e-Azam to Devdas to Karma…. It’s so difficult to find one favourite film of Dilip Kumar. Allah unhe jannat bakshe.

It’s the saddest news ever, Dilip Saab, everybody says he was an institution but if there’s somebody that I have really followed, really admired and really  wished to have met or worked with, it is Dilip Saab and all the cinema genres and all the industry all over the world, it was one person that I thought the complete man in every sense, complete Artist, Human being in every sense, somebody who embodied everything, what’s is with being a good human being a man and actor, the amount of education he had the way, he equipped himself, the way he understood cinema, politics and the responsibility as an artist, I think nobody else could. And I have read books on him, I have just finished reading his book, in fact, just a week back I watched all his Films, This is just the saddest day ever. If you ask me my favorite Film of his is Ram aur Shyam, it had everything in it, it had all emotions in it, but there is no film that you can pick up of Dilip Kumar Saab and say that there’s something missing in it.

“Yeah duniya aaj se, Phir mehroom ho gai..
Aap thhey, to, Yeah duniya, behtar thhi..
Na hua hai, na ho payega Koi shaks aapsa,
Na shaqsiyat Koi, na fankaar aapsa,
Yousuf Sahb. Visited this planet.. Made it better And left.. Thank you sir.. For sooooooooooo much.
Inna lillahe WA Inna elaihe rajeoon.”

Anjali Phougat

This news is heartbreaking. May his soul rest in peace. Dilip Kumar ji was a true legend and the film industry lost a gem today. My favourite of his films is Mughal-E-Azam. He was an inspiration to many and his acting skills were unmatched. Dilip Kumar Ji was a veritable legend of the silver screen. My sincerest condolences to Dilip ji’s family and fans.
We will never be able to fill this void. He will live in our hearts forever and we will always cherish his films. He has been involved with a number of charitable and social initiatives and taught us. To give back to the community in whatever way possible. He was such an inspiration to millions.

Sagar Parekh

Waking up to the news of Dilip Kumar’s demise is  definitely heartbreaking.  It is a huge loss for our film industry. He was an actor who never failed to connect with his audience with every character he performed on screen. Be it Andaz, Deedar, Devdas or any other film, he mesmerized us with his performance in all of them. Indians love sad stories and Dilip Kumar Ji was known as the ultimate tragedy king. My favourite film of Dilip Kumar is Andaz. His character’s name in the movie too was Dilip. The characters he played were intricate, self-conscious, powerful and rebellious in their own terms. I loved everything about him and have learnt so much.

I am disheartened to hear about the demise of Dilip Kumar sir. He is one of the legends of Hindi cinema. A trendsetter in terms of acting, style, he has and will continue to inspire generations of actors. I remember how much I enjoyed watching his films Mughal-e-Azam, Saudagar, Naya Daur and many others. My grandfather has a vast collection of all the film songs of Dilip Kumar.

He still plays it on his system all the time. When I spoke to my grandfather today, he was heartbroken to hear the news. But we ended up discussing Dilip ji’s films and the music we used to listen to. He told me about his favourite films being Ram Aur Shyam and Azad. I Hope Dilip sir’s journey has been fulfilling and a beautiful one. Strength and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Nivedita Basu

Dilip Kumar was an icon for the entire Bollywood community. My two favourite films of his are Karma and Saudagar. I did not watch too many films as a child though. I think he lived his life happily with his wife Saira Banu. I remember seeing him smiling in all the pictures, during his interactions with the media. To wear a smile even in your toughest time is something which I think we should learn from him. He loved his craft and his passion got translated into his performances.
He was a method actor. I very clearly remember Saudagar because it was one of the cult films that I watched as a kid. The news of his demise is shocking. He is and will always be loved and looked up to. His art was pure and continues to inspire actors of all generations.
