Dev Anand turns 88

India’s evergreen superstar, Dev Anand, turns 88 today. Says Dev excitedly, “I am having a meeting with Warner Brothers my producers of Chargesheet about the premiere on Monday morning. In the evening, my friends have planned a dinner. A lot of eminent people think my birthday is worth celebrating.”

Dev Anand has got himself an I-Phone for his birthday. He turns 88 with the announcement of the sequel to Hare Rama Hare Krishna which brings back the character that Dev played in the original…39 years after it first appeared.

Apparently, the character would have aged by less than a decade in the sequel, as the story moves forward. The hunt is on for what the evergreen superstar describes as “A woman of today, trendy savvy with-it and attractive.”

Reveals Dev Anand, “I have the script for Hare Rama Hare Krishna Aaj which takes forward the story of the earlier film. It is not a remake of Hare Rama Hare Krishna. I don’t believe in remakes. I believe in moving forward. Every scene every character except mine would be new. If Dev Anand played Prashant in 1971 he will play Prashant in 2012 as well.”
