'Tragedy King' completes 92 years.

'Tragedy King'. The only name that comes to our mind whenever we hear this title is of Dilip Kumar, the man who has been a part of many classics and is considered as one of the finest actors of the previous era.


Born on 11 December, 1922 as Yusuf Khan, Dilip Kumar used to run a canteen in Pune before he was spotted by actress Devika Rani. And the rest is history.


We bring to you some of the most memorable films of his that are termed as classics and showed us the brilliance of DIlip Kumar's method acting.


1. Mughal-e-Azam:


#

Certainly the grandest love-story ever told in the history of Indian cinema. A cinematic brilliance in itself, 'Mughal-e-Azam' told us the story of love between court-dancer Anarkali and King's son Saleem. A love, that had no caste-boundaries. A love that wasn't accepted by Saleem's father Emperor Jalaluddin Mohammed Akbar. DIlip Kumar, known for playing romantic leads, portrayed the role of Saleem; a portrayal that is still remembered by everyone even 54 years later.


2. Daag:


#

His portrayal won his the very first 'Filmfare Award for Best Actor' ever. Yes, the very first recipient of the award. Need we say more?


3. Naya Daur:


#

The most-loved film of Dilip Kumar. He portrayed the role of a tongawalla who stands alone but fights for all, and wins in the end against the unbeatable. A movie that touched every Indian's heart.


4. Devdas:


#

Much before SRK won our hearts, the iconic character of Devdas was played by the man whom even SRK considers as his role-model, Mr. Dilip Kumar. He mesmerized with his brilliant portrayal as the dark, alcoholic and romantic Devdas Mukherjee.


5. Ram Aur Shyam:


#

Even the tragedy king needed some different genres of movies. A blockbuster hit, the movie had all the spices- romance, comedy, drama, action and yes….two Dilip Kumar's!


There are so many great movies, but these movies surely stand out and show us what an amazing actor this legend is who even holds the record for most number of Filmfare awards as the Best Actor (shared with SRK).


Here's wishing the legendary Mr. Dilip Kumar a very Happy Birthday and a speedy recovery.
