Dilip Kumar and Madhubala
The personification of seduction- Madhubala, had an indeed serious relationship with the legendary actor Dilip Kumar. The duo did not shy away from media and never attempted to hide their relationship. It was the premier of their movie Insaniyat, where the press noticed them publicly walking with interlocked hands, thus leaving no scope for any questions. Their relationship was an open secret, but then why they did not get married? A question that still haunts many of their fans!
After so many years, in 2014, Dilip Kumar finally broke his silence on his relationship with Madhubala in his autobiography, Dilip Kumar: The Substance and the Shadow.
In a recently released excerpt from his book, the thespian says, “I must admit that I was attracted to her (Madhubala), both as a fine co-star and as a person who had some of the attributes I hoped to find in a woman at that age and time.”
Not surprising, even though this love-story came to a tragic end, but the two names- Dilip-Madhubala are still taken in one breath by lovers.
