Do I need to introduce you to this legend? Certainly not, I believe. Past master actor and director Manoj Kumar will bag the 47th Dadasaheb Phalke Award for the year 2015. The actor himself was surprised when he got this news. Last year the Dadasaheb Phalke award was given to the very popular actor Shashi Kapoor.

Manoj Kumar himself couldn’t believe about this achievement

He said “I was taking a nap when calls from Ashok Pandit and Madhur Bhandarkar woke me up. I was astonished that I would be getting the Dadasaheb Phalke award. I could not believe it.”

Everyone in the Bollywood fim industry knows that Manoj Kumar has never been crazy about awards. He had a bright 58-year-long distinguished career in this industry and did an exceptional job. He had won the first national award as a scriptwriter for the movie Shaheed in the year 1965, further he bagged a national award in 1967 for the patriotic film Upkar. Manoj Kumar said “I donated the entire amount I got for my national award for Shaheed to Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s family. Awards do give any creative person a sense of satisfaction. I am happy that the government has at last rewarded my work”.

Manoj Kumar gives credit to his parents for his achievement

He said “Today, I ¬remember my late parents. Without their noble teaching and guidance, I would have never reached where I did. I also fondly remember Dr.V.Shantaram, Raj Kapoor and Raj Khosla on this day. They were my inspiration.”

Soon returning as a director with a film on Aryabhata

Manoj Kumar is soon making a comeback to Bollywood as a director. He is working on his next directorial venture which would be based on Aryabhata, who was the famous mathematician from the classical age. He said “I’m going to return as a director soon. I am working on a film on Aryabhata. It is an interesting story to tell viewers about his contribution,” he further added “We have been working on the film for a very long time. Since three years we are working on script, as it is a difficult subject to deal with”

His 7 Memorable Roles

As I said he needs no introduction. The great legend is also known as Mr Bharat Kumar. This names quite well suits him, as he made many movies on patriotism and was indeed a true patriot. We can never forget his trade mark gesture of covering the side of his face with his hand, this was something specific that he did while acting in certain situations. Let’s check out his 7 memorable roles:

1. Upkar

This movie gave him the ‘Bharat’ persona. He became a brand of patriotism & fearless courage with this film. No doubt this movie was a blockbuster at the Box Office.

Post trying out different roles in the late 1950, he returned to the patriotic themes in Purab Aur Paschim. This movie portrayed differences in the culture and tradition of East and West. He proved with this movie that his name ‘Bharat’ was quite well deserved.

5. Woh Kaun Thi

In this movie Manoj Kumar played an active role. It was a suspense thriller, and Manoj’s character in this film was a far away from his popular “Bharat Kumar” image.
