There’ll be no actor like you in the history of Bollywood ever for you have a matchless and a perfect style which no one can replicate.
While I was coming back in train today, the railways played the song ‘Zindagi ek safar’ in your remembrance. I could never be a part of the crowd who shouted on watching you but I surely am the daughter of the couple who adored you. When I was a kid and was getting my slam book filled by Dad, he had told me that you were his favourite actor and my Mom agreed to him as well. At that time I didn’t know the magic you had spread through super duper hits like Aradhana, Bawarchi, Hathi Mere Sathi and the list goes on. You bagged on every award during those days and married the hottest actress of those times. You were certainly the man every girl would want to get married to.
You passed away three days back leaving back a huge nmber of fans in tears. We sat watching you go to the heavenly abode on television. My Mom had tears in her eyes and I knew there were thousands like her.
‘Mere sapno ki rani..’ made all of us skip our heart beats and no song of today’s times can beat the amazing music of 70s. Somehow I feel your presence made the song even more beautiful. ‘Roop tera mastana..’ really made a girl sweep off her feet and ‘Kuch to log kaheng…’ has been my all time favourite.
Though you are gone forever but you’ve etched a different place for yourself in our hearts. A salute to the man who gave romance a new meaning….the man who became the first superstar of our country..Sir, you’ll be heartily missed..May your soul rest in peace. Amen.
