On Lifecasting, Cinema and Memories

Had an interesting experience a few days ago. I had read of lifecasting used by sculptors to achieve accuracy in creating statues and busts in museums and by special effects conjurers in cinema for creating dummies in scenes requiring perilous stunts by the actors. 

Last week, Riteish Deshmukh, my dear friend Vilasrao Deshmukh’s talented son, visited us with his lifecasting expert to get impressions of my hands and Saira’s hands which will be in a museum he proposes to have for cinema lovers. The alginate mixture poured into trays reminded me of the mixture I used to see in a bakery in Poona years ago where I used to drop in to buy my favourite biscuits during my first ever stay away from my family in the early 1940s.

It took only a quarter of an hour for the team to get the mixture ready and get our hands imprinted on the mould which I am told will be imaged on metal for display in the museum. It is Riteish’s brain child and it is his way of telling those of us who spent the best years of our lives entertaining and, hopefully, impacting people’s minds through our films, that our hard work and contributions to the growth of the medium have not been in vain.

I have heard from my family about Riteish’s gift for excelling in comedy. I have known him for some years now as a well bred young man doing his parents proud. I hope to be at his wedding on February 3 and share the Deshmukh family’s  happiness on the occasion.

  1. Asalam-o-Alikum Uncle,
    I love reading your blog and the memories that you share with all of us. There is so much one can learn from just reading your thoughts and the memories you talk about. I was born and raised in Pakistan and have always heard people around me talk about you, your family as well as your visits to Pakistan after the partition. I think it's amazing that you continue to inspire and bring the both countries together through your work.

    Lots of love and duas to you and Saira aunty. May Allah (swt) bless you and always keep you happy and healthy together.

    This is a good idea from Riteish.

    Sir you should make a (video Diary) for people its like you record your life story on a camera in which you can show your old still photos with your story.

    Allah app ko khush rakhe.

  6. Assalamualaikum Dilip Sahab,

    Very nice video.

    It was high time someone realized that we needed a Hall of Fame for Bollywood and am glad Riteish has taken the first step towards this gargantuan task. I only wish they had thought of it before we lost so many legends of our cinema...

    Nonetheless, I am glad to see impressions of your hands being saved from the callous killer called Time. Certainly for someone who has left the most indelible footprint on the silver screen it must have felt like life has come a full circle...:-)

    Regards

  8. Dear Dilip Kumar, two years ago thanks to the Internet, I discovered you and your movies. I'm from Czech Republic / former Czechoslovakia /, with us your movies are almost never seen. The first film I saw was the Mughal e Azam. Then I saw that many times and I still can look at it - and always pat. There have impressed me, your acting, so I started looking for more of your films. I have not seen perhaps 3, otherwise known to all, even though most of them were in the original version, it seems to me that they understand - and I started to learn Hindi to understand them better. I prefer / except Mughal / Azzad, Madhumati, Naya Daur, Ram aur Shyam, Kohinoor, Nadyia to Paar, Aan ... I wish you good health in the future and thank you very much. Mary
