MUMBAI -- Former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri today described veteran actor Dilip Kumar as an icon for both India and Pakistan.

Kasuri, who met Kumar at the latter's residence in suburban Bandra this evening, said he had deliberately chosen to visit Jinnah House, Mani Bhavan and Kumar's residence as the three figures were icons for both the countries, ORF Chairman Sudheendra Kulkarni told PTI.

Kulkarni, who accompanied Kasuri to all the three places, said the Pakistan leader was greeted with warmth by Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu.

While Kasuri presented a copy of his book 'Neither a Hawk nor a Dove: An Insider's Account of Pakistan's Foreign Policy', which was launched in Mumbai yesterday, Kumar gave Kasuri a copy of his autobiography, Kulkarni said.

According to Kulkarni, Kasuri, who arrived here on October 11, will be leaving for Delhi tomorrow morning.
