Dev Anand's autobiography Romancing With Life coming on Sep 26

Dev Anand's autobiography, Romancing with Life which is published by Penguin International, will be launched on his 85th birthday on September 26 by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at Race Course Road, New Delhi.

Sonia Gandhi would also join them during the celebration as the chief guest.

The book will be released the next day in Mumbai, followed by subsequent launches in Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore. The launches will then ensue to Europe, US and Canada.

The London launch will be conducted by Tina Ambani as that's where Dev Anand made the film Des Pardes and launched Tina.

The quixotic Dev Saab, for the first time writes about his 62 years in Mumbai. His zest and enthusiasm is difficult to match. His Navketan still acts as a launching platform for many debutante actresses. The veteran actor continues to work, as he believes creativity does not die with age.

The guest list for the launch is endless, as he cordially invites the whole country for his book launch.

The 465 pages book also contains some 50 exclusive pictures of the actor, taken on different occasions. It took him almost three years to draw the book to a close.
