I am so heartbroken by d news that the ‘King of Cinema’ DILIP KUMAR has passed away.
I admired him as an actor & respected him as he was my fathers first cousin frm Peshawar. Therefore I called him Yusuf ‘Lala’. He was very loving to me.
‘Khuda Paiman Lala jan’.🤲#DilipKumar pic.twitter.com/37RbzFb9EP
