Dilip Kumar’s story — from an unknown newcomer to a Bollywood super star — is surely an inspiring one. And author Udaya Tara Nayar has captured this story in a biography of the star.

While the book was supposed to be launched last year, and got delayed due to Kumar’s ill health, the date for the launch is out now. On June 9, Kumar’s peers and even younger stars will gather at the biography’s unveiling, which will take place at the hands of Amitabh Bachchan.

Sources close to the veteran actor inform us that a suburban five-star hotel has been booked for the launch and the team has already begun the prep work for the event. A close aide of Dilip saab’s family, Murshid, says, “The book will be launched by Mr Bachchan, who has been a great admirer of sir’s craft. Dharmendra, who is also very close to Dilip saab, will also be present at the event. Other celebrity invitees include Lata Mangeshkar.”

In a coup of sorts, the three Khans — Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh — might also come together at the launch. A source confirms that Aamir will be present at the do. “Shah Rukh and Salman have also been invited. The three of them are in the city at that time and have already made changes to their schedules to attend the function,” says the source.
