Many of the fans are not happy with the decision.
Reacting to the decision, many suggested to rename the account or leave it as it is instead of closing it down.
It's not necessary to close it. You may rename it to 'Dilip Kumar Memorial' and then use the account to post clips from his movies or his interviews and stuff like these.

You must not close this account. Although Dilip Kumar Sahab was and shall always remain in our hearts, But this account also has some great memories related to Dilip Kumar Sahab. It is a humble request to reconsider you decision.
