The world knows Dilip Kumar as a star, an impeccable actor, and a legend. But what was his life like behind the façade of the star? In a recently launched Hindi edition of this biography called Dilip Kumar: In the Shadow of a Legend, the author Faisal Farooqui who knew Dilip Kumar for over thirty years gives the reader a fascinating glimpse of the man beyond the legend. Gleaned from the author’s many exchanges over casual evening teas, car rides and sunset walks, or late-evening silent reflections at Jogger’s Park, and even a pilgrimage to the Holy Mecca, this Hindi edition memoir introduces us to aspects of Dilip Sahab which are little-known to the world. This book on Dilip Kumar also talks about the voracious appetite he had for books, his inquisitive and curious mind, his love for literature and poetry, his contribution to building the Jogger's park, and the foodie he was, especially his love for paani puri from Karachi sweets. Faisal in his heartwarming Hindi edition memoir has mentioned hilarious anecdotes from his film shoots, like the time he couldn’t run slowly enough for his first shot in cinema, or the one childhood experience that haunted him forever, the little-known Qissa Khwani Bazaar Massacre of 1930. This Hindi edition biography also has the many life lessons the author picked up from his innumerable conversations with the man he calls a ‘father figure in whom I found a guide’. This fascinating biography holds Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar's complete life story. This Dilip Kumar book is available in English, Hindi and Urdu edition.
