Dilip Kumar had quite the fan following in Hollywood as well. He was to make his Hollywood debut with the oscar-winning movie Lawrence of Arabia, but Kumar turned down the offer as he believed that he did not need Hollywood to prove himself, he said in an interview with Times Of India, “I took a decision, which was appropriate at that time.
