Entry in Team India thanks to Dilip Kumar
Recently veteran actor Dilip Kumar has passed away. Yashpal Sharma was a big fan of the actor. Not only this, his entry in Team India was done due to Dilip Kumar. Yashpal had revealed in a show that his career was made only because of Dilip Kumar Sahab. Only after his recommendation was the entry in the team. Dilip Kumar spoke to Rajsingh Dungarpur in BCCI for Sharma after watching Punjab’s Ranji match. This was the reason why Yashpal had immense love for the actor. Whenever he used to hear the news of Dilip Kumar’s ill health, he used to get uncomfortable.
