Legendary actress, Waheeda Rehman was moved to tears on Monday when she unveiled the statue of the late Dev Anand at the Bandra Bandstand Promenade.

At the launch of the statue on the actor’s first death anniversary, Rehman told Times Of India, “He is not here with us today and I am unveiling his statue. His name will always be remembered in the film industry forever. He will be alive in the people’s heart.”

“One thing I noticed about Dev saheb was that he was modern yet simple at heart. He never had stylish cars, never had a huge birthday bash and no show offs,” she said.

The actress starred in films like ‘CID’ (1956) and ‘Guide’ (1965) with the huge star before he passed away at the age of 88 in London last year.
