"Chargesheet, a movie releasing on 30th September, 2011 will star Dev Sahaab"... This was the news that started making the rounds and everyone was shocked! Yes, Dev Anand who was still young at heart at 88 and just like his autobigraphy believed "Romancing with Life", was a representative of everything that is lively, young and great!
