Today is Dilip Kumar’s 92nd birthday. One of the most respected actors in the history of Indian films, Dilip Kumar is known for his distinct style of dialogue delivery. Here, we have compiled a list of five of his most iconic dialogues. Take a look.

Devdas (1955, Bimal Roy)
It was one dialogue which brought out the self destructing tendencies of Devdas in its most potent form.

Dialogue: Kaun kambakth hai jo bardasht karne ke liye peeta hai. Main toh peeta hoon ke bas saans le sakoon.

Dil Diya Dard Liya (1966, AR Kardar) This film was based on Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, and this particular scene brings out the frustration of its lead Shankar.

Dialogue: Main wo badbakht hoon jiski aatma in deewaron se din raat takrati rehti hai.

Mughal E Azam (1960, K Asif)

Thanks to Dilip Kumar and Prithviraj Kapoor, Mughal-E-Azam has become one of the most celebrated Hindi films of all time. This is a verbal duel between Akbar and Salim.

Dialogue: Taqdeerein badal jaati hai, zamana badal jaata hai, mulkon ki taarikh badal jaati hai, Shahenshah badal jaate hain magar is badalti hui duniya mein mohabbat jis insaan ka daaman thaam leti hai ... woh insaan nahi badalta.

Mashal (1984, Yash Chopra)

This particular scene is a chapter in acting, to say the least.

Dialogue: Ae bhai, koi hai.

Saudagar (1991, Subhash Ghai)

What do you expect when Dilip Kumar and Raj Kumar engage in a verbal battle. Watch this scene to understand it in complete sense.

Dialogue: Dikhaa apni udaan Rajeshwar.
