Not only film industry, even media did not recognise him. For several years, we have never seen any article on him in rediff or any other website or publications. But he was loved by people, as seen by the crowd thronged to pay him last respect. I remember how excited my parents were to hear Darasingh is going to be the Hanuman. They were not even regular followers of Hindi films. For our generation, of course, he was the face of Hanuman.
Sagars are right about his moral stature. With him an era has passed. Actors like Dara Singh and Sunil Dutt had class and personified integrity and known for being good humans. There arent actors like them in todays film industry.
