Known as perfectionist, Aamir Khan was present along with horde of other Bollywood biggies to launch the autobiography of Dilip Kumar 'The Substance And the Shadow', documented by close friend of thespian and author Udaya Tara Nayar.
Aamir, who recited a poem written by Prasoon Joshi on the stage before unveiling the book, shared, ''I think I am the biggest fan of Dilip Sahab
in this world. I have grown up watching him and his work. He is such an inspirational figure. I have learnt so much just watching him. There is altogether different aura of Dilip Sahab
. There is no one like him and there can be no one in the coming times. Everytime I watch him on-screen, his work I feel I am discovering something new about Dilip Sahab
. It's truly an honour to be here.''
Aamir was also all praise of Saira Banu, who took the initiative and was driving force behind the autobiography, about being extremely supportive to Dilip Kumar in his each and every endeavour. CHECK OUT - 'Substance And The Shadow': A monumental step forward by Dilip Kumar
