    Those were the days! Dilip Kumar was the one who set the screen ablaze with precise and emotional portrayl of the lead man. Dilip is one guy who won his tremendous fan following because of his impressive and unmatched acting skills and not gimmicks and publicity which is so prominent today. Dilip Saab was the one of the troika others being Raj Saab and Dev Saab who swayed masses with his histronics and acting. Dilip Saab is one of the best dressed males in the industry and a gentleman. His immortal performances will always continue to inspire the younger generations.
