Such a delightful threesome, the trio had regaled us with their incredible charm and sophistication for decades, their movies and songs still popular and being played on radios round the world! Such a wonderful photograph


Dev Anand married co-star Kalpana Kartik (Mona Singha) in a very non-filmi style during the shooting of TAXI DRIVER. Both took a half-an-hour break between shots to get married at the Registrar of Marriages and came back as husband and wife to resume the shooting.

#Hollywood actor Gregory Peck & Bollywood heartthrob #DevAnand...Both shared a very close resemblance. It is also said that Dev Anand used to model himself on #GregoryPeck to impress Suraiya because she was a big fan of Gregory while our Dev was in love with Suraiya.


Made for each other! Kishore Kumar’s voice suited Dev Anand perfectly. In fact, #KishoreKumar’s first recorded song “Marne Ki Duayen Kyon Maangu” for “Ziddi” (1948) was picturised on Dev. From then on, Kishore preferred singing only for himself and Dev till 1968-69, when he turned towards full time playback singing. Their musical bondage lasted right from ‘Ziddi’ days till Kishore Kumar’s death in October 1987.
