Feb 22, 2024

Meena Karnik, the well-known Marathi film critic, writer and editor, unexpectedly fell in love with #DevAnand. So much so that she watched 80 films of the enduring romantic icon of Hindi cinema in a single year, a feat the star himself never indulged in in perhaps his entire career.

The result of Dev Anand-binging is her book in Marathi 'Pyar Ka Raag Suno'. She has co-authored it along with Dwarkanath Sanzgiri and Hemant Karnik.

The book traces Hindi cinema's romantic journey through its enduring emblems, from Dev Anand to #ShahRukhKhan via #ShammiKapoor, #RajeshKhanna and #RishiKapoor. Meena spoke to Mayank Chhaya Reports from Mumbai.
