Janhvi Kapoor took to her Instagram and shared, “Dilip Saab. I have never seen an actor embody silent dignity the way that you did in Mughal-e-Azam, or look at their lover with as much honesty and devotion as you looked at Anarkali. Never have I seen madness in an actors eyes the way that I saw in yours in Andaz, one that was founded in pain. Or do comedy like you did in Ram aur Shyam with a stillness and an ease that was never typically associated with humour. Everything you did felt like it was grounded in truth. The most dignified, evolved and perceptive screen presence I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Thank you for everything you have imparted to us through your iconic work, your wisdom and your words. You are enormously responsible for encouraging Indian cinema to recognise and value a new kind of artist. One who knows and represents the people with sensitivity and awareness. For encouraging a progress towards realism and truth and showing us that even that can be larger than life, showing us that honesty is what people fall in love with. #RIP Dilip Saab- you are truly irreplaceable. And thank you. ❤️
