Dalip Tahil on playing Aamir Khan’s father in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak at 31: Didn’t even think before taking it up

Dalip Tahil has over forty decades of experience in Bollywood to look back on. The star has found himself a part of more than a few films which have been embraced by audiences, and Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak is definitely one among them. The actor recently opened up about starring in the 1988 Mansoor Khan directorial.

In conversation with TOI, Dalip revealed that he had been offered the film after Mansoor saw the former’s acting in the series Buniyaad. The director had told that actor that he wanted a character that was strong, but also emotional and Dalip fitted the bill. The actor spoke of how the film was initially supposed to be helmed by Nasir Hussain and Sanjeev Kumar and Shammi Kapoor were in talks to star. But Mansoor had taken the reins when Nasir had health issues. Dalip said that several actors had turned down a role in the film as well.
