Over the decades, we have witnessed tons of iconic characters on the big screen, and one such character is 'Thakur' from the legendary film, Sholay. The iconic character was portrayed on the big screen by the late legendary actor, Sanjeev Kumar. The one, who is the winner of two National Film Awards for his incredible acting in films, Koshish and Dastak
Sanjeev Kumar had made his debut in 1960 with the film, Hum Hindustani and since then, he had never looked back and had gone to do more than a hundred movies in six different languages throughout his career. Now, an unseen picture of Sanjeev Kumar with his eternal lover, Sulakshana Pandit, is doing rounds on the internet.
Iconic actor, late Sanjeev Kapoor, was renowned for his iconic dialogues, soulful tracks, and evergreen scenes in his films. Even today, people never miss a chance to cherish his old memories through his old pictures, unseen videos, and movies. Recently, we stumbled upon a rare photo of him with his eternal devotee and lover, Sulakshana Pandit, and it is doing rounds on the internet. The picture is from their film, Uljhan, and the way Sanjeev is looking at Sulakshana in the photo has refreshed all the tales of their magical but incomplete love story.
For the uninitiated, Sanjeev Kumar had remained unmarried throughout his life and had passed away as a bachelor. Even after so many years, it's still tough to digest the fact that a person like him with a golden heart had gone through such a painful love tragedy. In 1973, Sanjeev Kumar had fallen in love with one of the most gorgeous and incredibly talented actresses of her generation, Hema Malini. The actor had proposed to her for marriage, but the actress had denied his proposal.
While for Hema Malini, it had passed away after some time, it became unbearable pain for Sanjeev Kapoor. Later in his career, Sanjeev's name was linked with many actresses of his films, but they were all rumours, and at that point, people had started realising that Sanjeev is going to remain single for the rest of his life. Many actresses had fallen in love with Sanjeev Kumar's charisma and talent, but with time, everyone had moved on after getting no response from Sanjeev's side.
In 1975, Sanjeev's name had begun to link with his co-actress, Sulakshana Pandit. The chemistry between the two had received a lot of praise from the audience. While Sulakshana was already head-over-heels in love with Sanjeev, everyone had started anticipating that Sanjeev was also in love with the gorgeous actress. But even that didn't materialise, and despite continuous approaches from Sulakshana, Sanjeev had remained unmarried throughout his life. After Sanjeev's demise, Sulakshana had decided to stay single for the rest of her life, and that's how their beautiful love story had remained incomplete.
Sanjeev Kumar and Sulakshana Pandit had worked in films like Apnapan, Uljhan, Waqt Ki Deewar, and many more.
