Dev Anand is busy with his film Charge Sheet.

Dev Anand is busy with his film Charge Sheet.

Evergreen star Dev Anand had recently given an interview to journalist Gautam Bhattacharya which had been published in Anandabazar Patrika on 25th June, 2011.

He had said that he had been busy working with his new film Charge Sheet. He had crossed 88 years and still showed the enthusiasm to work on the sequel of the film Hare Rama Hare Krishna, which he made in 1971.

When he was asked about Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar, he said, if Raj Kapoor would have taken care of his health he would have survived for more time and made more films. Dilip Kumar was happy to be an actor and never showed the interest of directing films. Dev Anand missed his team of performers like Vijay Anand, Kishore Kumar, Sachin Dev Burman, but he said that death was also a reality which people should face.

He also said that he never looked back at his work, and whenever his hit films like Hum Dono, or Guide are shown in TV Channels, he hardly had seen them. About the new generation of actors, he had stated that he hated body building and opening of shirts to show the body. He said Raj Kapoor or Dilip Kumar, or he himself never required to open their shirt to show their body. He did not comment about the question why Rajesh Khanna faded out of the industry after ruling bollywood for short time, while Amitabh Bacchan ruled bollywood for a longer time.

In respect of maintaining his health, he replied that he never smoked, nor drunk, he never ate spicy food. That was the secret of his fitness. Whenever the lift failed, he still could climb upper floor on stairs, whenever his car failed, he could board a taxi.

He wanted to work till his last day of life and that was a great message he gave to every section of the society. The new generation should learn from Dev Anand, how to be fit.
