Speaking to ETimes, Hema Malini said that they lost the last pillar of Bollywood. “Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar were the three pillars of Bollywood. Each one had a distinct style of acting. With Raj saab I started my career in Hindi films. With Dev saab I was fortunate to do 7-8 movies. He was very fond of me. However, unfortunately I never got an opportunity to be paired opposite Dilip Saab.”
