"Anand marte nahi, Anand mara nahi," this dialogue is probably one of the most loved and iconic statements of any Hindi film. Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film Anand featuring Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Lalita Pawar, Johnny Walker, Dara Singh, Sumita Sanyal, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Durga Khote and others clocked 50 years yesterday. The film is one of the most loved and iconic films of Hindi cinema. The film’s dialogues, music and the story are still relevant even after 50 years have passed since its release.
Paying a tribute to the timeless classic, several celebrities including Anand Mahindra, Atul Kasbekar, Anil Kapoor, Twinkle Khanna, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, Sumeet Raghavan, Nila Madhab Panda, RJ Anmol, Kunal Kohli and several others posted on social media expressing their fondness and reverence for the film.

#Anand saw it first time on DD & many times after that. The performances of #RajeshKhanna & @SrBachchan always leave me spellbound. The music needless to say is cult thanks to #SalilChaudhry & #Gulzar Saab. One of #HrishikeshMukherjee’s finest films. Yeh mere sapne yehi toh apne https://t.co/ncaPD5pI5z
