Overview for Romancing with Life: An Autobiography

Dev Anand is something of a Bollywood institution. His romantic persona, dialogue delivery, song picturizations and mannerisms are legend, and for generations of filmgoers he has remained Hindi cinema’s most charismatic personality. In Romancing with Life, the first-ever full-fledged memoir by a leading Bollywood star, he tells his remarkable life story-no less dramatic and gripping than any of his films-like only he can. Here are tales from Dev's youth in 1930s Gurdaspur and Lahore; his years of struggle in 1940s Bombay; his friendship with Guru Dutt and his doomed romance with Suraiya; his marriage to co-star Kalpana Kartik; his relationships with his brothers Chetan-who brought him to Bombay-and Vijay Anand-who directed him in hit after hit, with S.D. and R.D. Burman, who provided the memorable music for his films, with his compatriots Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, to both of whom he was very close, and with his heroines, from Geeta Bali, Madhubala, Meena Kumari, Nutan, Vyjayanthimala, Mumtaz and Hema Malini to Waheeda Rehman, Zeenat Aman and Tina Munim, all of whom he launched. Dev Anand has produced an unputdownable book chock-full of bittersweet reminiscences, written in a pacy, effervescent style that carries the reader through sixty of Bollywood's most interesting years. With rare pictures from his personal archive, Romancing with Life is the quintessential Dev Anand. Special edition includes exclusive free DVD of Dev Anand's hit songs.
