Waheeda Rahman and Jackie Shroff attend the guide demonstration

A film festival to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of film icon Dev Anand was inaugurated on Saturday evening with packed screenings of the actor’s popular films ‘Johny Mera Naam’ and ‘Guide’ at PVR Juhu here.

The two-day event titled ‘Dev Anand @ 100 – Forever Young’, curated by Film Heritage Foundation (FHF), will showcase four films of the actor. The other two films “CID” and “Jewel Thief” will be shown on Sunday.

Waheeda Rehman, Dev Anand’s co-star in films like ‘CID’ and ‘Guide’, actor Jackie Shroff, filmmaker Sriram Raghavan and FHF director Shivendra Singh Dungarpur introduced the two titles at the inauguration of the festival.

Rehman said she met Dev Anand on the set of CID, the 1956 film that marked her Hindi cinema debut.

“I am very happy that I did my first film ‘CID’ with Dev Sahab. When we were introduced, I called him ‘Dev Sahab’, he said ‘Waheeda, you won’t call me Dev Sahab’. I said ‘I’.” “I’m not that badly brought up, you’re older than me and such a big star. This is my first film. How can I not call you Dev Sahab?” He said, “I don’t feel comfortable when someone calls me ‘Sahab’, I feel like a school teacher. So just call me Dev,'” the 85-year-old star said at the event.

Dev Anand is the “only actor I have addressed by his first name,” she added.

“He never once made me feel like he was such a big star or older than me. He made me feel comfortable and cooperative. I am proud to have worked with a legend like Dev Anand. I wish he were here.” “I’m sure he must be happy up there. He has received so much love from us,” said the actor.

“It was, is and remains an evergreen. He was a charming personality, dedicated, punctual and a thorough gentleman,” she continued.

Rehman also praised the late actress for her role in Guide, the 1965 film directed by his brother Vijay Anand. Dev Anand was the producer and lead actor of the film.

“It was such a pleasure to have worked with him. He was one of the reasons I got (cast) in ‘Guide’. He had said, ‘No one will play Rosie but you, Waheeda,'” she said.

The screening was also attended by Vaibhav Anand, son of Vijay Anand, families of Dev Anand, Chetan Anand, Prem Nath and Jagdish and actors Mink Brar and Divya Dutta.

The response was amazing. In many parts of India, cinema halls were overcrowded. It was so nice to see such a young audience watching these films. It was an amazing experience. It was full of houses almost everywhere, Dungarpur, also a filmmaker and archivist, told PTI.

Ahead of the festival, FHF ambassador, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, also came to X to congratulate the non-profit organization for the retrospective.

Bachchan said Dev Anand meant something infinite, “a continuity that we all took for granted”.

“The fact that we can see these films almost 70 years after the first film was released is because they have been preserved and restored.

“This just reinforces how important it is to preserve our films for future generations. Don’t miss the chance to see Dev Anand back on the big screen this weekend. @shividungarpur @FHF_Official,” the 80-year-old wrote on the platform.

Organized in association with NFDC-NFAI (National Film Development Corporation Of India – National Film Archive of India) and PVR INOX, the festival will be held in 30 cities and 55 cinema halls across India.

The restoration of films for “Dev Anand@100 – Forever Young” was carried out under the National Film Heritage Mission and funded by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
