Aamir recited a poem penned by Prasoon Joshi and few actors came on stage to share their experiences about the veteran actor.

"It is a big day and I am big fan of Yusuf (Dilip Kumar) sahab. It is a memorable day. He is such an inspirational figure to me right through my career. I have learnt so much from him. Every time I watch his work I feel am discovering him each time. I am thrilled to be here," Aamir said.

"I am looking forward to read the book where we will get to know about his life, his experiences and it will be an opportunity for me to learn something from this," he said.
