"Live life to the full and take each day as it comes" is the mantra of Bollywood's evergreen actor Dev Anand to "remain young" forever.
"You must live life to full, enjoy it in its totality, take each day as it comes, face all challenges it poses with renewed vigour. This is the secret to remain young forever," the 85-year-old film legend, told PTI here.
Though a certain amount of discipline in food habits and physical regimen were also needed, the most important factor is "your outlook, the way you think", the flamboyant actor with a lover-boy image, said.
"Always look ahead and be keen to learn new things and you will never age," he said.
The actor-auteur also spoke about his future projects and said that he was in the process of finalising the cast for his upcoming Hindi movie Chargesheet, the filming of which will probabably commence in March.
"I am also planning an English film based on NRIs in London, which will be shot in Europe," he added.
On whether he will make a film on Indo-Pak ties, Dev Anand, who was born in Gurdaspur in undivided Punjab and studied in Lahore, said "the country is going through a political turmoil after Benazir Bhutto's assassination. Let it settle. I haven't thought about it as of now".
On his message to the youth in Bangalore, he quipped, "they are very smart and intelligent and know how to go about in life. They do not need any message."
