Bollywood legend Dev Anand's son Suniel will bring in the 89th birthday of his late father tomorrow to celebrate his achievements, and plans to announce a film, helmed by him under the Navketan banner to carry forward the legacy of the evergreen actor.
The 88-year-old veteran of Indian cinema passed away last year in December at London following a cardiac arrest. He has countless hits to his credit including those like 'Paying Guest', 'Baazi', 'Jewel Thief', 'CID', 'Johny Mera Naam', 'Amir Garib', 'Warrant', 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna' and 'Des Pardes'.
Last year on his birthday, Dev Anand had called his friends over and cut a cake at his favourite hotel in suburban Mumbai. This year too, Suniel will host a get together at the same place - Sun and Sand hotel at 6 pm.
"We will celebrate this birthday this year as well. He is still with us in our hearts. He is a source of inspiration to me and several others. On this (birthday) occasion we will celebrate his life and achievements," son Suniel said in an interview.
A few rare pictures from Dev Anand's personal album will be on display for media and fans.
"We will have some rare photographers of dad in size of 5 foot by 3 foot. We have selected some unique photos that we will display like -- dad in action during his various shoots, on his travel all over the world while he was attending film premiere, while he was writing, meeting famous people etc.
"It will be a unique event. We will have close friends and fans, who used to regularly every year come to wish him on his birthday. Those close to dad will speak a few words about their association and share fond memories," Suniel said.
However, friends and colleagues of the legendary actor-filmmaker from the industry won't be part of the occasion tomorrow.
