When actor Dilip Kumar turned ‘Gandhiwala’ in jail

When actor Dilip Kumar turned Gandhiwala in jail Veteran Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar was once arrested by police for his ‘anti-British’ views and spent a night on hunger-strike along with other ‘Gandhiwalas’ lodged in a prison cell.

In his recent autobiography ‘Dilip Kumar: The Substance and Shadow’, the legendary actor recounts how his patriotic eloquence met a fate he had never imagined!

In pre-independent India, during his stay at Poona (as Pune was known then), Dilip Kumar worked at a canteen in Air Force cantonment when one day, at the behest of a senior colleague, he made a speech about India’s superiority as nation a nation of hard-working, truthful and non-violent people.
