Did you know that before the gorgeous Deepika made her way into stardom, another Padukone was at the top and a superstar? We are talking about none other than Guru Dutt! Yes that’s right Guru Dutt’s real name was Vasant Kumar Shivshankar Padukone. When Dilip Kumar refused to star in his film Pyaasa, Dutt decided to cast himself. The film went on to become a masterpiece of Indian cinema and a commercial success. It went on to feature in the Times magazines ‘100 greatest films' It also starred Mala Sinha, Waheeda Rehman, and Johnny Walker. 

Some of the other notable works of Dutt include films like 'Kaagaz Ke Phool', 'Chaudhvin Ka Chand' and 'Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam'. He was considered one of the biggest stars of Indian cinema. Sadly, Guru Dutt was found dead in his apartment on 10th October 1964. It was said that he consumed a lot of sleeping pills with alcohol, which led to his death. However the reason for his death has always been a topic of speculation.
