Personal life:

Although Anand and Suraiya were in love with each other from 1948 to 1951, they never got married because Suraiya’s maternal grandmother opposed their relationship. Suraiya remained unmarried throughout her life and died on 31 January 2004.

In 1954, Dev married Mona Singha (also known as Kalpana Kartik), a Bollywood actress from Shimla, in a private ceremony while they were both working on the film Taxi Driver. They have two children, a son named Suneil and a daughter named Devina.
