Ajay Devgn Dev Saab's unique style and his undying passion for cinema will always inspire us. His demise is a huge loss to the industry.
David Dhawan He was one of the most romantic heroes and directors I ever knew. I had been meeting him on and off but I remember one incident while shooting in Mauritius for Bade Miya Chote Miya with Amitji, Govinda and Madhuri for a song on the beach. Suddenly there was a commotion and all of them ran crying 'Devsaab has come!' We all met exactly for five minutes but the energy he exuded was mazing! He was magnetic. What I admore most about him was that he died with his shoes on and I would like to do that too. Devsaab has gone away but he given us a library of films to go on. He is my hero. I would go to watch his films in black. What modern films he made. God bless his soul.
Sanjay Dutt Devsaab was very close to my mom and dad. He was at Breach Candy when I was born. He named his son Sunil after my dad, such was their friendship. Whenever I dubbed in Anand Dubbing studio, I made it a point to meet Devsaab. He gave me his autobiography, signed the first page and kissed my forehead! I remember all these words he spoke a year back! God bless his soul...
Aamir Khan Indian cinema has lost one of its biggest stars. Dev Sahab was a force of creative energy. A man of immense charisma and charm. He was an icon for many generations. His passing away is a sad loss to all lovers of Indian cinema. My heartfelt condolences to all in the family.
Sonam Kapoor He was the hero of my fav film guide. And his songs were something that dad and me bonded over while watching. He was my fathers favorite actor.
Anil Kapoor I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Dev Saab passing away. Over the years it seemed as if Devsaab had figured out the formula for agelessness. Now that he is no more the words 'ever green' don't seem synonymous with anyone, anymore. I spoke to him quite recently during the release of his film Chargesheet. He sounded exuberant and cheerful gearing up for his next venture. Maybe that is meant for the Gods now. Devsaab - I will miss you.
Karan Johar My father had worked with Dev Saab for over 10 years, so I grew up hearing about the legendary actor. When I first met him as a child, my father asked me to touch his feet. I still remember Dev Saab looked at me and said, "Never bend son. Shake my hand... you're a gentleman just like me!" I was all of eight, but I can never erase the dynamism of DEV ANAND. Legends don't die... they just exit the present leaving behind a past that the future can embibe!!
