Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar turned 95 today!

His birthday typically sees an outpouring of love from fans and a steady stream of guests at his and wife Saira Banu's Mumbai residence.

This year, however, Saira Banu informed well-wishers that his birthday celebrations will be low-key with fewer guests at home, "as doctors have advised Saab to be protected from any infection."

It's as good a day as any for fans to brush up on their film knowledge. Do you know what went into the making of one of Bollywood's brightest stars?

Test your knowledge of the milestones of Dilip Kumar's life and career in the quiz below.

@Einstein babar you are wondering but i am wondering how a man of Dilip kumar's calibre fell for a beauty without brains called Madhubala.Back then Dilip kumar was not simply Dilip kumar,he was The Dilip kumar.His commitment ,dedicationand method acting left many spell bound.Amjad khan's father Jayant says that seeing his dedication toward's his work in Devdas I said tohim that you will burn yourself before your time.Everybody knew at that time that Dilip kumar's most friends were from outside the Industry who were mostly intellectuals as he himself was.Lastly my friend please take Einstein out from your name as your comment wil have even turned Einstein in his grave.
