The world knows Dilip Kumar, the star, the actor, the legend. But what was he like behind the fac_ade of the star? In Dilip Kumar: In the Shadow of a Legend, 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, the book introduces us to aspects of the star very few of us know. His voracious appetite for books, his inquisitive and curious mind, his love for literature and poetry, his role in building Jogger?s Park, the foodie in Dilip Kumar and his love for paani puri at Karachi Sweets.There are also 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. Also, 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?.
