On one hand there are stars in the film industry that have debuted with much fanfare but have not been able to make any mark, while their still is a category of stars that continue to evince interest among the audience though they are well past their prime.
These stars are like Pole Star that continues to shine with their luminosity. Here is a list of some of these stars that continue to enliven the screen whenever they step on to it.
Foremost among the stars in the category is Dev Anand. He really is following in the footstep of his Hollywood counterpart Gregory Peck maintaining the same enthusiasm for cinema as he used to have in the early fifties when he had stepped into the world of filmmaking. The passion for cinema continues to manifest as he had been talking about it from the time when he used to travel in the local trains to shoot in Malad in various studios, as informed through Pran's biography, AND PRAN written by Bunny Reuben. Dev Anand is one of the stars that do not believe in getting training to become a star. In fact he had commented so at the time of convocation of Whistling Woods, the training institute of Subhash Ghai, that he came whistling into the Hindi films. He is one of the troikas of Indian cinema that continues to maintain the same passion though it is more than sixty years since he first stepped before the camera.
