Dum Dum Donut­terie’s Paul Har­vey ex­plains how he man­aged to take the guilt out of eat­ing dough­nuts

his youth­ful ex­u­ber­ance on the big screen. And this is com­mend­able be­cause he did not have par­tic­u­larly unique looks or a stylist, and some of the char­ac­ters he por­trayed on screen did ques­tion­able things. Yet, view­ers adored him for his charm­ing per­sona.

The pres­ti­gious Dadasa­heb Phalke Award, con­ferred on him in 2015, is a fit­ting trib­ute for his out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the world o of cin­ema and the­atre. The award re­vived the p pub­lic’s mem­ory of an ac­tor who strove to de­fine the image of cin­ema and is a vi­brant part of global cin­ema.
