Subject : Request to install the statue of Dilip Kumar in any significant areas of Mumbai

Dear Respected Sir.

We bring to your kind attention that Thespian Dilip Kumar's demise on 7th July 2021 sent the nation into mourning. The icon, who passed away due to age-related illness, has left a rich legacy behind him for filmmakers and actors. Kumar's funeral proceedings began as his mortal remains were wrapped in the Tricolour. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had announced that Dilip Kumar will be cremated with full state honours.

The late Dilip Kumar, born Yusuf Khan, was more than a legend, and way more than an actor. In the late 50s, his films like Naya Daur reflected India at the time. Dilip Kumar's demise is a loss to India, both to its films and to the fragment of the secular India that he espoused.

Bollywood's 'Tragedy King', Dilip Kumar became a household name for generations to come. In the late 40s and 50s, he was the voice of the Indian youth, through his work.

He has been credited with bringing a distinct form of method acting technique to cinema. Kumar holds the record for most wins for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor and was also the inaugural recipient of the award.

In a career spanning over five decades, Dilip Kumar worked in over 65 films.

Dilip Kumar is widely considered one of the greatest actors in the history of Hindi cinema.He holds the Guinness World Record for winning the maximum number of awards by an Indian actor. Over his career, he received eight Filmfare Awards for Best Actor (with 19 total nominations) and a Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award (1993).He also received a Special Recognition Filmfare Award at the 50th Filmfare Awards for being one of the first recipients of Filmfare Awards along with Lata Mangeshkar and Naushad Ali. Many great actors including Shah Rukh Khan consider Kumar as their inspiration.

Kumar was appointed Sheriff of Mumbai (an honorary position) for 1980.The Government of India honoured Kumar with the Padma Bhushan in 1991, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015.The Government of Andhra Pradesh honoured Kumar with NTR National Award in 1997. The Government of Pakistan conferred Kumar with Nishan-e-Imtiaz, the highest civilian award in Pakistan, in 1998. He was honoured with CNN-IBN Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.

From the independence of India in 1947 to the late 2010s, Kumar held the record of performing in the highest number of highest-grossing box office grossing films (9 films).

Its our humble request, kindly install the statue of Dilip Kumar in any significant areas of Mumbai.

We would be highly thankful for your kind Act & Consideration. We pray for your kind intervention. Your continued patronage is important to me. Your continued patronage is important to me.
