A! walk down memory lane

nostalgic Dilip Kumar

Says Dilip Kumar, “Shakti is remembered not only because of me. Even Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Smita Patil and Amrish Puri contributed to making the film a milestone.”

The actor was also offered the lead role of Ali in the well-known Hollywood film Lawrence Of Arabia. “I did not accept the character of Ali in Lawrence Of Arabia though David Lean offered it first to me. The movie goes down in history and is well-known across the world.
But when the offer came, I was too occupied with Ganga Jamuna. I don’t regret losing out on it as I feel Omar Sharif was excellent and far more convincing.”
