Sanjeev Kumar - II

In the year 1968, he acted in Sangharsh directed by Harnam Singh Rawail where his co-star in the film was none other than the ultimate Dilip Kumar and the legendary Balraj Sahani. However, he managed to hold on to his own in a movie which had such big and legendary names.

However, it was in the year 1970 that Sanjeev Kumar tasted superstardom when his film Khilona was released. Khilona made him into a star in its truest sense. Khilona was directed by Chander Vohra and had Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Shatrughan Sinha, Durga Khote, Aruna Irani, Ramesh Deo and Jagdeep as a part of its star cast.

Thereafter, there was no looking back for Sanjeev Kumar. He went on to become one of the most versatile actors of all times. He essayed roles of extreme complexity with ease and was equally comfortable doing comedy as well. He had an awesome ability to emote with his eyes and facial expressions. It is often said that Sanjeev Kumar used to add tremendous depth to his character with his voice modulations at the time of dubbing for a film.
