Dilip Kumar

Among the first to reach  the residence were Shabana Azmi,  Vidya Balan and husband Siddharth Roy Kapur  and   Dharmendra who was seen sobbing  like  baby after seeing Dilp Saab’s frail shrunken  body.

Apparently the  religious  clerics were not allowing  Dilip Saab to be shaved(as it is against the  religion)   whereas  some  of those close to the departed  icon insisted that the  national hero go out for the last time  looking his best.
