India's evergreen superstar, Dev Anand, turns 88 today. Says Dev Saab excitedly, "I am having a meeting with Warner Brothers my producers of Chargesheet about the premiere on Monday morning. In the evening, my friends have planned a dinner. A lot of eminent people think my birthday is worth celebrating."

Dev Anand has got himself an I-Phone for his birthday. He turns 88 with the announcement of the sequel to Hare Rama Hare Krishna which brings back the character that Dev Saab played in the original…39 years after it first appeared.

Apparently, the character would have aged by less than a decade in the sequel, as the story moves forward. The hunt is on for what the evergreen superstar describes as "A woman of today, trendy savvy with-it and attractive."

Reveals Dev Saab, "I have the script for Hare Rama Hare Krishna Aaj which takes forward the story of the earlier film. It is not a remake of Hare Rama Hare Krishna. I don't believe in remakes. I believe in moving forward. Every scene every character except mine would be new. If Dev Anand played Prashant in 1971 he will play Prashant in 2012 as well."

He confesses he starts thinking of his next film even before he completes a film. "If you want to define Dev Anand, it would be to be as 'restlessness'. While I am making a film, I am totally consumed by it. But yes, a part of my mind moves to the next project."

Ask him what are his birthday wishes, and the inimitable Dev Saab quips, "I don't make wishes. I make them come true. I go with exactly what I want to do. It's an ongoing process. As long as I feel creative and as long as I feel there are some people who want to watch my films, I'll continue to make them."

Chargesheet which opens next Friday is a different genre for Dev Saab, "I haven't done this genre before. It's a murder mystery."

He continues to be as charged about his new film Chargesheet as he has been about all his other films. "If I'm not as enthusiastic about my new film then I've no business making it. The very fact that I've picked up the responsibility of directing another film proves I've the energy for it. The day I don't, I won't make any more films. My audience, my fans are my source of energy. I need my fans' good wishes gives me my energy," says Dev Saab.

We end the ebullient conversation with Dev Saab's message for his fans. "I love my fans and seek their good wishes all the time. The younger generations is so clued in, so huge in mind and impact. As they connect with me, I feel my batteries being recharged. Some of the most remarkable minds of the world stay in our country. And I give them my love and good wishes. Continue to see my films."
