King of romance
The interview with Dilip Kumar Master Speak, in Screen 9-15 Nov.2012 was very interesting. He is variously described as a thespian, tragedy king, king of kings and living legend. Dilip saab had once modestly said, "These are just big words and nothing else. I know and live with the real Dilip Kumar. He is a simple man, hard working, who has survived time."
Known for playing tragic roles in Deedar, Amar, Devdas, Ram Aur Shyam, Daag, Mughal -e- Azam etc.he soon earned the title of tragedy king. I am one of the lucky ones who has an original 1960 ticket of Mughal-e-Azam which was released at Maratha Mandir . The cost of this ticket was Rs.1.30 paise.

I was pleased to read the Survey of Indian film industry by Screen in the 61st anniversary issue (Nov.2-8, 2012). My congratulations to Big B for retaining the top position. It feels good to read about the success of the Kapoor khandaan whose family has been an integral part of showbiz.
Raj Kapoor remained the only person in the entire industry to retain his legendary status as an actor and a film-maker. Each film stand testimony of the man's genius.
Ranbir Kapoor is already following in his grandfather's footsteps and has been hailed as a potential legend according to the survey.
