As always this old man will walk the red carpet with Helen and leave his poor first wife at home.

He should be like Amitabh Bachchan. He brings Jaya and Rekha at every award ceremony but isn't man enough to acknowledge that his relationship with Rekha continues till date and him and Jaya live separately.

His contributions to Bollywood are immense. It's unfortunate that his achievements have never been acknowledged. He's not the type to buy awards and doesn't know how to do chamchagiri.

well deserved may times over.
