Kolkata, Jan 10 (UNI): A 12-page wall-hanging calendar paying homage to late Bollywood icon Dev Anand, whose 100th birthday would be celebrated this year, has been released here.
The colourful calendar contains vintage booklet covers of the hit movies starring the late genius, whose film career spanned six and half decades from 1946 to 2011.
Born on September 23, 1923, Dev Anand died on December 3, 2011 — two months after the release of his last film Chargesheet.
The calendar, christened ‘Evergreen Dev’, also exhibits covers of long-play record albums of his movies, film stills as also postal stamps on the actor-producer-scriptwriter brought out by the India Post (erstwhile Post and Telegraph department).
With Guide (1965) being one of Dev Anand’s classic films, the calendar was released on Sunday by a group of travel guides from the city.
The calendar has been planned and created by Sudipta Chanda, who earlier conceptualised several other genres of calendars.
