MUMBAI: Bollywood acting legend Sanjeev Kumar’s official biography is in the works with Reeta Gupta attached to write with the actor’s nephew Uday Jariwala.

Kumar, whose real name was Haribhai Jariwala, is considered one of the finest actors in Hindi cinema with films such as “Dastak”, “Koshish”, “Aandhi”, “Sholay”, “Mausam” and “Angoor” among many other.

The actor excelled in playing older men characters but died at a relatively young age of 47 on November 6, 1985 due to his congenital heart condition.

“My uncle’s biography was long overdue. I was really happy when Reeta Gupta approached me with the same.

“The legend of Sanjeev Kumar deserves to be told, as he left us too early. The enduring charm to his ‘common man’ appeal remains. Producers continued to release films (a total of 10), upto 1993, eight years after his death. Even today, Indians across the globe see him as an iconic performer,” Uday said in a statement on Wednesday, Kumar’s 34th death anniversary.

The book is expected to be ready by Kumar’s 35th death anniversary in November 2020.
