Dilip Kumar, one of the nation's most celebrated movie legends for decades, passed away at Mumbai's Hinduja Hospital today. From Mughal-e-Azam and Devdas to Ram Aur Shyam, the 98-year-old actor has given several classics to tinsel town.

Let’s take a look at his life through some pictures.

Dilip Kumar changed his name from Muhammed Yusuf Khan.

Before his career in acting, he owned a canteen and used to supply dry fruits.

Actress Devika Rani and her husband Himanshu Rai gave Kumar a break in the 1944 movie Jwar Bhata.

He was offered a role by the British director David Lean for the 1962 movie Lawrence of Arabia, but he declined the offer.

Look at those expressions!
