Renowned actress Waheeda Rehman's experience with Dilip Kumar:
Dilip Kumar and his work is familiar to the whole world. He was a very great star. He had a different identity of his own. I did four films with him like 'Dil Diya Dard Liya', 'Ram Aur Shyam', 'Mashal', 'Aadmi'. We got to know each other better during the shooting. There used to be a very playful atmosphere on our set. The co-star felt free to work with them. Despite being such a big star, he was very humble.
We first met at a party. After that, I made my first film with him, 'Dil Diya Dard Liya'. I was a little scared on the first day of shooting. But Dilip Kumar spoke to me with such love and affection as if he already knew me. He understood me well. I was relieved to hear him speak.
He was realizing any role. Everyone knew him as the 'Tragedy King'. He had amazing roles in all his films. He did not give the audience a chance to name any of his films. He had great devotion to his work. He used to work very hard.
If a scene showed him running out of breath, he would actually hit the ground running and then give it a shot. He was working with such a dedicated spirit. He had played mostly serious roles in his career. But in some films like 'Raam Aur Sham', he played light-hearted comedic roles and he did justice to those roles as well.
