Speaking to Pinkvilla exclusively, Himansh said, “It came as a shock when I got up and came to know about Dilip Saab death. This comes as a huge setback for everyone. Dilip Kumar Sahab was not only an inspiration, but also a gem who represented an entire era. It’s disheartening to lose such a treasure. May God bless his soul and give strength to his loved ones in these difficult times. He was an institution in himself. I loved his work in Saudagar Karma Devdas.  I would like to play the role of Devdas. The way Dilip Saab portrayed it left a huge impact on me. He was excellent in film Shakti too. Legends like Dilip Kumar are irreplaceable. He will live through his films. He is an institution for everyone. His talent was so impactful that his films you can watch again and again and each time you can find depth in his acting.”

Meanwhile, Dilip Kumar was laid to rest in Mumbai with full state honours in the presence of family members and close friends.
