Dilip Kumar’s Stellar Performances- Birthday Special
WRITTEN BY Saumya Jaiswar
Many people were moved by Kumar's performance of the drunkard who passes away without saying goodbye to his childhood love Paro.
One of the heartbreaking flicks by the illustrious performer was the ultimate love story of the Mughal prince Salim and a court dancer named Anarkali.
His character, the late dazzling singer Nargis, and the late actor Munawar Sultana were involved in a sad love triangle in the musical drama that became the second highest-grossing movie of 1950.
Amiya Chakravarty's social drama 'Daag,' which was produced and directed, earned Kumar the first-ever Filmfare Award in the principal category of best actor.
Naya Daur (1957)
Directed by BR Chopra, this romantic love triangle about two best friends falling in love with the same woman (Vyjayanthimala).
The unfulfilled love of Dilip Kumar's character, who was separated from him due to social inequities, is the focus of one of the well-known tragedies in early Indian cinema, 'Deedar.'
This Bimal Roy movie, starring Vyjayanthimala and Pran alongside Kumar, is yet another iconic movie.
Ram Aur Shyam (1967)
Kumar played the double role of brothers Ram and Shyam in the film and gave audiences a glimpse of his comic timing.
