Anupam Kher recalled gatecrashing a party and meeting Dilip Kumar there

Veteran actor Anupam Kher reminisced about his memories lately actor Dilip Kumar. Anupam recalled an event from several years ago when he gatecrashed a celebration and ended up meeting Dilip.

Dilip Kumar died at the Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday (July 7). He had worked with Anupam Kher in films like Karma, Saudagar and Izzatdaar.

Speaking to Times Now, Anupam said that one among his journalist friends snuck him into a celebration that was attended by several stars. “I was stunned. I had been in Bombay for the last two years but i used to be seeing all actors there. And suddenly, I saw Dilip saab coming, so I went up to him and that i said, ‘Namaste, sir’ ”, Anupam said.

Dilip perhaps mistook him for a lover whom he couldn't quite place, Anupam said. “Toh unhone kaha, mera haath pakad ke, aise apne bagal mein leke, ‘Bete, kahaan rehte ho? Bohot dino baad dikhayi diye’ (He took my hand and placed it under his arm. He asked where I lived and said that he had not seen me around for quite some time). Now my hand is in Dilip saab’s bagal and he's lecture everybody, and that i am walking behind him sort of a clown”.

Anupam said that Dilip was ‘being polite’ because he couldn't have imagined that there would be any gatecrashers at the party. “Aur main chahta tha ki poora world mujhe dekh le iss samay ki Dilip Kumar saab ne mera haath apne bagal mein rakha hua hai (I wanted the entire world to ascertain me then because Dilip saab kept my hand under his arm). i need to not have washed my hand for an extended time”, he said.

Dilip is survived by his wife Saira Banu. He was laid to rest at the Juhu Qabrastan in Mumbai with full state honours.
