About the Book


Before the overly dramatic movies with technologically enhanced backgrounds, simpler times existed. A compulsively readable collection of memoirs and stories of Bollywood's who's who, The Legends of Bollywood includes enthralling stories of the stars of the yesteryear.


From Amitabh Bachchan's first screen test to Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi's baptism into Johnny Walker, and from Dharmendra's journey from a tractor driver to a legendary actor to Dimple Kapadia's iconic comeback into the industry, this book includes everything that's good, bad, and fabulous in Bollywood. With never-before-seen pictures, it is a sensational book that narrates the tales behind celebrated births and lamented deaths, secret romances and controversial moments, booming films and unforeseen flops. Penned by a man who was a constant witness to these moments, these stories have been pulled from the archives of his myriad memories.


Raaj Grover was the production-in-charge of the prestigious Ajanta Arts in Mumbai, which was owned by Sunil Dutt. Grover was an integral part of the Dutt family. During his days in the film industry, he also dabbled in filmmaking. A poet at heart, he is known for his witty take on life and his joie de vivre. He currently lives in the USA.

Foreword


It really gives me great pleasure to know that Mr. Raaj TGrover has worked very hard at gathering all memories of his close associations with many well-known and respected celebrities of the Indian film fraternity in the form of a book titled The Legends of Bollywood, in three languages - English, Urdu and Hindi.


This book will reflect the vision and appreciation of his honest and sincere efforts towards the very interesting anecdotes that he has experienced in almost 50 long years of his association with this industry.


I take this opportunity to congratulate Uncle Grover, who, along with his family, has been emotionally attached to everyone in our family. We appreciate his decision to dedicate this book to the Nargis Dutt Foundation.


My heartfelt thanks for his love towards our family. The Dutt family wishes Uncle Grover grand success for his book The Legends of Bollywood.
