Dev Anand was an actor par excellence. In the 40 and 50s, there was no one as charming as him. He had an air of confidence that was unmatched. His lover boy image made many swoon over him. Even when he was past his prime, he had a disarming way of serenading not just women but men too. He has put Hindi Cinema on the global map with his much-talked about film Guide. Such was his prowess and popularity that even Hollywood came knocking at his door. Dev Anand played the lead in The Evil Within, a Indo-Filipino English film which was distributed by 20th Century Fox. But alas, it never got a release in his home country.
