July 7, 2021 is indeed a black day for Hindi Cinema as the film fraternity lost its gem, Mr. Dilip Kumar. While many actors have been putting their thoughts across on this irreplaceable loss, actor Sahil Phull, who has played varied roles in shows like Uttaran, Piya Rangrezz, Kundali Bhagya and Haiwaan: The Monster, also has a few words to share about the thespian.
Sahil, while paying tribute to Dilip saab, told us, "He can be termed as a true legend. Not only was he one of the best actors of all time, but also a great inspiration to millions of actors as well as non-actors. We have not witnessed any actor in present and past times to have crossed the benchmark set by Dilip sir. Besides being a phenomenal actor, he is a remarkable human being."

Adding to the same, he says, "The realistic aspects that we see in web series and movies these days have long been present in many of Dilip sir's hit movies like Saudagar, Devdas, Ram Shyam and Kranti. The realism and authenticity that we vouch for these days, dates back to many of his movies of his time that are still relevant today. It's a loss for the industry to lose an effortless and naturally phenomenal actor as that of Dilip sir. He was India's one of the best earliest method actors."
