Happy Birthday Dilip Kumar!

Legendary actor Muhammad Yusuf Khan, popularly known as Dilip Kumar, turns 90 today. Regarded as one of the greatest actors of Indian cinema, Dilip Kumar started his career in 1944 with the film Jwar Bhata. Leading upto 1960, he delivered brilliant performances in unforgettable films such as Andaz (1949), Aan (1952), Devdas (1955), Naya Daur (1957), Mughal-e-Azam (1960) and Ganga Jamuna (1961). In 1976, the actor took a five-year sabbatical from films. He returned in the 80s with Shakti (1982), Karma (1986) and Saudagar (1991). His last film was Qila in 1998. He has been honoured with Padma Bhushan (1991), Dadasaheb Phalke Award (1994) and Pakistan’s highest civilian award Nishan-e-Pakistan (1997).  His fans gave him the title of 'Tragedy King' for his perfection in death and tragic scenes. 

This year, the thespian has decided not to celebrate his birthday owing to the demise of his good friends, Yash Chopra, Balasaheb Thackeray, Rajesh Khanna, Dara Singh and NKP Salve. He had written a few days ago on his blog, "With so many dear friends gone this year, how can we even think of a celebration?"
