Dev Anand Death Anniversary: 5 Romantic Hits Picturised on the Evergreen Bollywood Star
On the actor's 8th death anniversary, here are 5 romantic numbers which have kept Dev Anand's evergreen hero status intact among cinema lovers.
Noted film actor Dev Anand, who passed away on December 3, 2011, had an illustrious career spanning over six decades. Considered to be one of the greatest actors of Indian cinema, he got his first big break through Ashok Kumar. He soon acquired a romantic image with films like Manzil, Tere Ghar Ke Samne, Maya, Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai and Teen Deviyan.
His first colour film was Guide, opposite Waheeda Rehman, which was an immense hit, while Prem Pujari, which was a flop at the time of its release, has developed cult status over the years. Dev Anand first entered the realms of directing with Hare Rama Hare Krishna and went on to star in quite a few more hits following a period of slump.
The actor, whose failed love story with Suraiya has turned into a legend, has often featured in eternal love songs that still manage to tug at the heart strings of listeners over the years.
