Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar, popularly known as the Tragedy King, has romanced many top actresses on-screen over his six decades in Hindi films.

It is said that the actor always chose to act opposite the top actresses of his era. His tragic image as a doomed lover, mostly a victim of fate, made him the dream man of a million women.

The veteran debuted as an actor in the film “Jwar Bhata” in 1944. Since then, over the years, top actresses of the era have delivered hits opposite the thespian. Here are five heroines who made an outstanding pair with Dilip Kumar.
