Sanjeev Kumar was one of the finest actors of Indian cinema, who left us too early. Decades after this death, the work on his biopic has begun, which will release in 2020.

There is no denying the fact that Sanjeev Kumar is one of the finest actors that Indian cinema has ever produced. In his short but immensely successful career, he delivered several blockbuster movies which cinephiles enjoy watching even today.

Sanjeev Kumar breathed his last in the year 1985, at the age of 47. After more than three decades of his untimely death, which left a huge void in Bollywood, the iconic star of Hindi cinema is getting his biography. Yes, a biopic on Sanjeev Kumar is in the work.

“My uncle’s biography was long overdue. I was really happy when Reeta Gupta approached me with the same. The legend of Sanjeev Kumar deserves to be told, as he left us too early. The enduring charm to his common man appeal remains. Producers continued to release films up to 1993, eight years after his death. Even today, Indians across the globe see him as an iconic performer,” Uday Jariwala said in a statement on Wednesday which was Sanjeev Kumar’s 34th death anniversary.

Uday Jariwala feels that Sanjeev Kumar’s story deserves a book and a movie or a web series. Meanwhile, the biography of the legendary actor will hit screens on his 35th death anniversary in 2020.

Sanjeev Kumar, whose real name was Harihar Jariwala, has a number of successful films to his credit, including Dastak (1970), Koshish (1972), Arjun Pandit (1976) and Angoor (1982). He won several prestigious awards in his career, including two National Film Awards for Best Actor for his performances in the movies Dastak and Koshish. His double role in the film Angoor was listed among the 25 best acting performances of Indian cinema by Forbes India on the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema.
