Dev Anand a naturally broad-minded person loved cinema to the core but he could carry a conversation beyond it with ease. He was very interested in the Internet and kept himself with technological advancements and changing times. "Ask me anything and everything that you want", would be his way of starting a conversation when a person would struggle for the right kind of question to ask him. People who interacted with him said that Dev Anand never took offence to any question and never ever showed any high-handedness in answering any of them

The romantic charmer Dev Anand always loved to be in love. Could he fall in love even today asked a colleague and he candidly replied, "Why not? You cannot stop yourself from falling in love. But I am a responsible man. I have a wife and son. So I know where to draw my lines". Ask him what did he think of the woman of today and he said, "They are beautiful. Par hamare zamane mein nazakat hua karti thi. The girls had a natural charm. Today it's more artificial. I don't like girls who openly talk about condoms and sex".
