‘I don’t look back, what was gone yesterday…’ 90s ‘Villain’ got a lesson from Dev Anand, still following him today

Mumbai. Deepak Tijori, who entered Bollywood in 1990, is now away from the industry. Along with acting, he has also tried his hand in direction. He appeared in supporting and negative roles in 90’s films. He was last seen in the 2021 web series ‘Bullet’. Now he talked about his film career of more than 30 years and remembered the lessons he learned from late Dev Anand. He said that he never looks back. Dev Anand himself has taught him this lesson.

Speaking to IANS, Deepak Tijori said, “I don’t look back. I learned this from actor Dev Anand. He was a very sweet person who taught me this. ‘I would often stop by to have tea and chat with him. I had a great time with him, that’s why you can see me doing everything for him in his last few films.”

Deepak Tijori further said, “Even if it was just one song that I did in ‘Gangster’, you can see me in other films too, it was my love and respect for him.” Recalling an incident of their meeting, he said, “I remember asking him, ‘Dev Saheb, you gave so many superhit films in the 1960s, then why do you want to write new stories? Why don’t you just remake ‘Guide’ or ‘Hum Dono’, which were my favorites too.”

Deepak Tijori further said, “He (Dev Anand) immediately stopped me and said, ‘Deepak, I never look back, what is gone was yesterday, I live in what is today.’ Deepak shared that his learning remained for a long time. He said, “This is what I learned which I still believe in, and I am also thankful to God that he gave me the opportunity to do such work in the past also. If we get the opportunity, we hope to do even better work in the coming days.”
