He was blessed with unparalleled brilliance, due to which audiences across generations were enthralled. His passing away is a loss to our cultural world. Condolences to his family, friends and innumerable admirers. RIP.”
Nobody counts the Sacrifices of Saira Banu. she has put her entire life for Dilip Ji. Om Shanti
His reel life is a school in itself for all actors.
Alvida to the most revered Star of Indian Cinema. You will always be remembered as an institution for generations to come. May you rest in peace Sir
Rest in peace the greatest actor india had
An Era comes to an end. There is no actor, then, now and to come in nearby future, who could equal or do better than Dilip Saheb. He was a gifted Actor. The dedication and sacrifice of Madam Saira Banu is also very great. May his soul rest in peace.
End of an era... an institution himself having students like Amitabh Bachan, Manoj Kumar, Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Shahrukh Khan... etc etc......RIP the greatest ever Indian actor
一个时代的结束。他有很多优秀的学生，比如阿米塔布·巴强（Amitabh Bachan）, 马努基 库玛尔（Manoj Kumar）, Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, 沙鲁克·汗（Shahrukh Khan）等等。安息吧，印度最伟大的演员
An era comes to an end. RIP
Dilip Kumar aka Yusuf Khan was an overrated actor. He was not the institution of acting as there are many great actors in the industry. He was suspected Pakistani agent in the wars of 65 and 71. He loved Pakistan more than India. I don't shed a single tear.
The real enduring face of Indian cinema is no mpre.He is like the Hally's comet rarely seen.
He will be missed and non will be like him.
Dilipji you were a fantastic actor. You made the 1968 movie Aadmi song "Aaj purani rahon mein ..." memorable. May god bless your soul
迪利普，你是优秀的演员。你1968年演的电影Aadmi的歌曲“Aaj purani rahon mein…”令人难忘。愿神灵保佑你的灵魂安息
Late Dilip Kumar can only be equated with few in Bollywood like the late Sanjeev Kumar. May the departed soul rest in peace.
已故的迪利普·库马尔(Dilip Kumar)只能和已故的桑吉夫·库马尔(Sanjeev Kumar)这样的宝莱坞影星相提并论。愿死者的灵魂安息。
A great soul and fantastic actor. RIP sir
A great actor of 20th Century who inspired lot of youngster to get into the movies . His dance & acting was remarkable in Ganga Jamuna . he will be remember as finest actor in film industry .May his soul rest in peace
a big loss for Indian cinema, a legend taken his final eternal flight for heavenly abode. om shanti !
Such an over rated actor.
What can one say after a hill crumbles? A legend of highest quality has left the scene. It is impossible to describe his talent in words. Dilip Saab as he was fondly called by everybody set the trend in acting for others to follow. It is most certainly a great loss. Heartfelt condolences to the Family members. May His Sour Rest In Peace.
In simple words he was a legend.
people dont care for his demises. common man life is not affected by demises of celebriry
Dilip Saab, Rest In Peace. You have already immortal by your contribution to Indian Cinema.
