Birth Anniversary | Check unseen pictures, famous dialogues of Dev Anand
Lucknow: Born on Sept 26, 1923, Dev Anand will be an evergreen actor for the Indian cinema.
Cinema was his ultimate love, and his zeal for life and charm was inimitable. He continued to romance heroines and worked until his last days.
This irresistibly handsome hero of his time was once asked not to wear black suit in public apparently because it was hard for women to see him dressed in black and would jump from buildings. Dev Anand was born as Devdutta Pishorimal Anand and was called Dharam Dev Anand. He also had a nickname 'Chiru'.
Being an influential actor, he gave many gems in the industry including 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna'. He lost his life at the age of 88, but he will be always remembered in everyone's heart.
