“At this moment of grief, I have no words to express my feelings for our dear Dilip Saab. It’s unbelievable that he’s left us but he is very much with us. That should be the feeling we should always keep in our hearts. As you always said, we made a great team and I have worked with him in eight films. He was one of the outstanding co-stars I have worked with. It was Allah’s mercy to have had the opportunity to work with him,” she said.

Vyjayanthimala is famously known for essaying Chandramukhi in Bimal Roy’s Devdas , in which she was paired opposite Dilip Kumar who played the doomed lover’s role. Their on-screen chemistry was celebrated and lauded in films such as Devdas , Naya Daur and Madhumati to mention a few. The duo has worked in eight films.
