Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was on Sunday honoured with Padma Vibhushan, the country’s second highest civilian award, by Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Mumbai

The 93-year-old cine icon was bestowed with the honour at his residence here just two days after his birthday.

Dilip Kumar tweeted on the microblogging site:

His close friend Udaya Tara Nayar and compiler of the actor’s autobiography, “The Substance and the Shadow”, said that the actor was felicitated on Sunday afternoon.

He was presented the Padma Vibhushan medallion, a certificate and a shawl by Singh.

Present on the occasion were his actress-wife Saira Bano, Maharashtra Governor C.V. Rao and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Born in Peshawar now in Pakistan, Dilip Kumar, whose real name is Yusuf Khan, entered the Indian film industry in the black-and-white era and became a name to reckon with in the 1950s and 1960s.

He is credited for films like “Aan”, “Daag”, “Madhumati”, “Paigham”, “Leader” and “Ram Aur Shyam”.

His cinematic gems range from the tragic story of “Devdas”, the historical love saga “Mughal-E-Azam” to the dacoit drama “Ganga Jamuna”.

After working for about six decades, he stepped away from the arclights in 1998. His last movie was “Qila”.

Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore congratulated the actor.

He tweeted:

In April, Dilip Kumar could not attend the investiture ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan due to poor health.

Kangana slammed the series, calling it “Hindu phobic, atrocious and objectionable”.

“The problem isn’t just the Hindu phobic content, it’s also creatively poor and deprived, atrocious and objectionable on every level hence deliberately placed controversial scenes.

Jared Leto calls Zack Snyder a ‘madman’

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Actor Jared Leto says he enjoyed working with director Zack Snyder on his version of Justice League, known as the Snyder cut.

The actor will reprise the role of the Joker in the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

“He’s (Snyder) a warrior. He’s a madman. I really love him,” said Leto, reports contactmusic.com.

“With every character I play – I don’t know if it’s because I work so intently and I tend to dig really deep and put a lot of time and energy into it – but when I’m done playing with them, done playing the parts, I do miss them a little bit,” he added.

Leto had played the Joker in the 2016 release, Suicide Squad. He loves the chance to play the part of the DC Comics villain again.

“You do all this work and then you’re done, so it is nice to revisit things. You know, parts like the Joker, like Sparma (his role in ‘The Little Things’), what’s really great about those roles is they can be intense and dark, but there’s also a lot of freedom and abandon there,” said Leto.

“And that’s really fun for me, it’s fun for the other actors, it’s fun for the crew. With both of those roles, there was lots of laughter on the set and a lot of joy because you would improvise and say something really funny. So it’s always quite a lot of fun when you can hear people cracking up on the other side of the camera, and I like that quite a bit,” he added.
