Randhir Kapoor is the crestfallen. Talking to ETimes a few minutes back, he said, “The greatest actor Dilip Kumar is no more. The biggest personality has left us. My father Raj Kapoor’s close friend is gone.” Randhir recalled that Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor had done magic together in ‘Andaz’ which released in 1949. Nargis played the lead role and the film was a huge hit. “It was such a good film,” commented Randhir. Raj Kapoor’s elder son further said that he remembers that Dilip Kumar had gone to meet Raj Kapoor when he was in hospital in critical condition. “I remember Dilip Kumar was very sad then. In fact, whenever my father and he met, there were strong feelings between them.” Like Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar was born and raised in Peshawar, now in Pakistan. The two families used to live very close to each other in havelis, which are now being converted into museums. Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor’s friendship began when they were schoolmates.
