HINDI CINEMA ACTOR DEVANAND WAS A COMPLETE FAMILY MAN


                                                                         



DEVANAND ...THE FAMILY MAN ...WITH ACTRESS WIFE KALPANA KARTIK ,CHILDREN SUNEIL AND DEVINA .


KALPANA KARTIK was a beauty queen from St. Bede’s College, Shimla, her actual name is Mona Singha..


IN AN INTERVIEW TO  RANJAN DASS GUPTA OF HINDU  NEWSPAPER  , KALPANA KARTIK  ( BORN 1931 ) GOES ON TO INFORM :
                

“ I belong to a Punjabi Christian family from lahore. I was christened Kalpana Kartik by Chetan Anand..Dev had a truly colourful personality. As an actor he had a unique style. When he exposed his true inner self, he performed superbly. Chetan saab rightly said that Dev had smiling eyes.”


“ Dev was a shy, youthful person, very co-operative and sensitive. We passed six decades together amid a lot of thick and thin. Whenever I heard rumours that he would desert me, I laughed my heart out. I knew that nomadic Dev would always be mine. “


“ I still remember our midnight marriage on the sets of "Taxi Driver" in 1954. Dev had the ring in his pocket. We had asked the registrar to come there. In between the breaks when the lighting was being done on the sets, he signalled to me , we went into our departmental room, got married and came back. But, the cameraman... because i had that ring on my finger spotted the ring and said that it is breaking the continuity of the scene. He knew of our affair and therefore he was so confident. Dev said 'shutup, don't speak about this... later, let's take the shot first'. It was great fun.”


“ He was a really caring husband and father. People feel we separated, but that is absolutely false. Dev is very much in my heart even today, smiling and guiding me as only he can. I just cannot believe that he is no more. To me he is always Dev Anand my husband, right from our midnight marriage on the sets of Taxi Driver in 1954.”
