He died young but now lives forever. This could be the epitaph for Sanjeev Kumar who made versatility his nickname in a film career spanning two decades. Though it is said that they die young whom Gods love more, yet it’s sad that Sanjeev, who enacted dozens of unforgettable aged characters, did not live to see even fifty summers when there was still an immense reservoir of brilliance to be tapped. Scores of wonderful actors have straddled the Hindi film screen but few could transcend limits of histrionics like Sanjeev Kumar did even in the most mundane and mediocre film productions.
