At the same time the actor is has completed the script for the sequel of his popular movie ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’. The movie is titled ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna Aaj’ and casting will start as soon as his movie ‘Chargesheet’ releases.

Talking to a daily on eve of his birthday, Dev Anand said that he isn’t planning on retiring any time soon.

“Fulfillment of all your desires means retirement from life. My body may be weak but my mind is strong and I shall go on. I am little more than alive,” he said.

When asked how he maintains himself at this age he replied, “"I hold myself, I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't over-eat, I am not a glutton. I have light breakfast, I try to skip my lunch, and I love chicken though. I am a lot into fruits. I love papaya, custard apple, litchi, but I eat only when I am hungry."

“I have never done yoga asanas or any other exercise but my life has been very yogic because I am fit when I am projecting myself. I have been working for so many years but even today when I go to bed I am thinking, 'Oh, I should have given that shot this way',” he added.

We wish Dev Anand Saab a very Happy Birthday!!!
