- Actor Dilip Kumar is known as the first superstar of Bollywood.
- In the 1960s, the police raided the house of Dilip Kumar.
- Dilip Kumar has been accused of being a Pakistani spy.
Dilip Kumar was a Muslim by birth and his name was Muhammad Yusuf Khan. He was once suspected of being a Pakistani spy in the 1960s. The Calcutta Police had arrested a Pakistani spy at that time. In his diary there were names of big people including Dilip Kumar. In the investigation of the case, the Calcutta Police felt that Dilip Kumar may be related to the detective and raids were conducted at his house. However, nothing suspicious was found from his residence.
After the raid, various speculations started being made about Dilip Kumar. It was rumored that a radio transmitter was found on the ground in Dilip Kumar’s house and that he was one of the leaders of Pakistan’s Muslim spies in the film industry. But all these speculations were completely false. Although Dilip Kumar was born in Pakistan, he was always Pakistani at heart. When Pakistan conferred on him the title of Nishan-e-Imtiaz, he consulted the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee before accepting the honour.
