Dev Anand memorial planned

MUMBAI: A Dev Anand Memorial has been planned in the newly reconstructed Anand Studio at Pali Hill, Bandra.


Anand, who was never found without a muffler around his neck and a pen in his hand, will now be immortalised through the many things he made popular in a one of its kind. The memorial will house the legend‘s personal belongings along with the many film manuscripts, props, posters, slides among many other things.


Suniel Anand said, "We do plan to preserve all the valuable memories... everything that was close to his heart. My father had an obsession for hats and pens. It was a part of his style statement. He was very fond of writing and he loved collecting pens of which he had a huge collection."


Apart from hats and pens, the evergreen star was also fond of scarves, sun glasses, jackets and watches. Observed Suniel, "He used to wear Tissot watches regularly. Those will be a part of the display in the memorial. A lot of his written work will also be a part of it. We want fans to know and understand the professional and personal Dev Anand."


Apart from building the memorial for his father, Suniel will also be completing his last project - the remake of Hare Rama Hare Krishna.


Talking about the memorial, he further added, "My father had a fetish for hats and pens. It was a part of his style statement. He was very fond of writing and he loved collecting pens. He had a huge collection."


The memorial is expected to be opened for visitors after 10 months.


Meanwhile, Suniel has also planned to re release Guide as part of his respect to his father. Speaking about the decision to re-release the film, he said, "An American company has restored Guide. It‘s being converted to wide screen and we will do a fresh soundtrack maybe in the Czech Republic. "It‘s a big, big responsibility. The world is watching me. I will have to live up to their expectations."
