In honor of the 100th anniversary of Dilip Kumar’s birth, PVR Cinemas and the Film Heritage Foundation have organized a special film festival called Dilip Kumar: Hero Of Heroes in various cities across India. The first screening at this festival was held at PVR in Juhu Mumbai when Dilip Kumar’s 1952 film Aan was screened for moviegoers and fans. Saira Banu joined many Bollywood greats in celebrating the occasion.

The evening kick started when Saira arrived at the venue and was seen fondly touching Dilip Kumar’s poster. Other prominent names at the screening included Prem Chopra, Jayshree T, Ramesh Sippy, Kiran Juneja, Ayub Khan, Anees Bazmee and more.

Speaking to ETimes at the screening event, Ramesh Sippy, who had directed Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan in Shakti, said: “Shakti was my most satisfying film. I learned from Yusuf saab, I am overwhelmed.”

At the event, Saira Banu said, “Amitabh refers to Dilip saab as the benchmark of acting. There will never be another Dilip Kumar again. Never!”

The Hero Of Heroes Film Festival takes place in more than 30 cities across India and the two-day festival will showcase Dilip Kumar films like Aan, Ram Aur Shyam, Shakti and Devdas.
