What's in a name, the famous adage was today taken in the right spirit by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Jaipal Reddy when thespian Dilip Kumar forgot his name at the inaugural function of the International Film Festival Of India.

The thespian, who was one of the chief guests at the opening ceremony, while delivering his speech slipped over Reddy's name and addressed him as 'Jaisalma'.

However, a sudden bout of whisper and the thespian realised the faux pax and immediately admitted his mistake and blamed his forgetful nature for the same.

A sportive Reddy, without taking offence, described Dilip Kumar as a thespian of thespians and an icon of icons.

The image of Dilip Kumar burnt brightly as days passed and "though his forgetfulness grows, his memories among the people still continues to grow day by day", he added in a jocular tone.

Dilip Kumar the legend has made a comeback with the coloured version of Mughal-e Azam, the Minister added.
