Dilip Kumar Parmar Walks Down The Memory Lane when he first Met Dilip Kumar
Dilip Kumar lookalike explained, “Our lookalike organization president Arif Khan had summoned me to Mumbai for an award event, and there I met a veteran makeup artist Anwar Bhai, who drove me to Dilip Saab’s residence. Saira Banu did not want me to see Dilip Saab since he was in poor health. When she saw my image, we received a message saying Dilip Saab ko Andar bulao (call Dilip Kumar inside), which was the biggest praise I’d ever received. I had the opportunity to meet her, and she wished me well and inquired about my feelings for Dilip Kumar. ‘When I told her, she went, “Mujhse zyaada Pyaar nahi kar sakte (you can’t love him more than me); my eyes welled up”.
All of the family members, as well as the police officers stationed at the home, snapped photos with lookalike Dilip Kumar. Some of them even commented, “After a long time, we can see Dilip Saab walking around the house; it touched me that I could bring some good memories back for them,” he added with a twinkle in his eye, as the entire household, took selfies with him.
Dilip Kumar Parmar has known the renowned Dilip Kumar since he was a youngster in Ahmedabad. “My father was born on the same day as Dilip Kumar, and my father called me Dilip, but no one realized I looked like him until we went to see a movie with him,” he explained.
“I was young and had never seen a movie before. My father took me to see ‘Bairaag,’ which had just come out around the time of the kite festival. When we exited the theatre, I raced to grab a kite. My father caught me and was about to smack me. The venue’s security officer stopped him and informed him that I looked like Dilip Kumar. Dilip Kumar, I believe, rescued me from being smacked by my father.”

There has been no turning back since. I was able to act, but no one can replace Dilip Kumar. All I did was amuse people who adored him “..
