The 98-year-old, the legendary actor Dilip Kumar shared a short clip of the iconic scene from the 1955 cult classic and National Award-winning movie 'Devdas' on social media.
The scene is shot between Kumar who played the role Devdas, veteran actress Suchitra Sen played the role of Parvati and Padma Shri recipient Vyjayanthimala played the role of Chandramukhi in the movie.
