Sanjeev Kumar a great artist par excellence , he has done many role as south thespin Shivaji Ganeshan use to do , i.e. peforming all the characters with great aplomb and hence he is considered to be a great hero . His nine roles in Nayi din Nayi raat is excellent. Be it a comedy, tragedy , he excells. but others, they perform only one character. mainly as a hero. but sanjeev other than hero, he peformed his role in various category , hence i like him the most.
