Sanjeev Kumar's potentials could be fathomed by the best directors. Satyajit Ray took him in "Shatranj ke Khilari"for a vital role. Basu Bhattacharya put him in his off-beat films "Anubhav"and "Greehapravesh", Mahesh Bhatt used him brilliantly in "Viswasghat"in which Sanjeev played double-role of father and son.

In view of personality Sanjeev Kumar was more matured and ripened than he truly was. So he was more catchy and authentic in old-aged characters. In "Zindagi" opposite Mala Sinha, he was throughout an old man, when, in fact, he was in his thirties. In "Viswasghat"his wife was the late Dina Pathak, and no discord was traced. In Trishul, Ye Hai Zindagi, Aandhi, Arjun Pandit, Devta etc Sanjeev's presentations as old call for greater acceptibility. He knew the art of "Chehera Pe Chehera".
