Dilip Kumar is one of the most treasured actors of the industry and has millions of fans across the country. The veteran actor married actress Saira Banu in 1966 and this year marked 54 years of their wedding. In a recent interview with Times Of India, Saira Banu gave an update on Dilip Kumar’s health and revealed that he is ‘not too well’. She also asked fans to pray for his health.
WHAT DID SAIRA BANU SAY?
Saira Banu said, “He’s not too well. He’s weak. At times, he walks into the hall and back to his room. His immunity is low. Pray for his welfare. We are grateful to God for each day.”
She further added that she is looking after the veteran actor ‘out of love and not duress’. “I am not looking for praises to be called a devoted wife. Just to touch him and cuddle him is the world’s best thing that’s happening to me. I adore him and he is my breath itself,” said Saira Banu.
DILIP KUMAR AND SAIRA BANU’S ANNIVERSARY
This year, the couple did not celebrate their wedding anniversary as Dilip Kumar’s brothers, Ahsan Bhai and Aslam Bhai, passed away after testing coronavirus positive.
Saira Banu posted a message on Twitter that read, “Oct. 11, is always the most beautiful day in my life. Dilip Saheb married me on this day and made my cherished dreams come true. This year, we are not celebrating. You all know we lost two of our brothers, Ahsan Bhai and Aslam Bhai.
“The unprecedented turmoil due to the Covid-19 pandemic has taken many lives and caused sorrow in many families. In the current circumstances, we request all of you, our dear friends, to pray for each other’s safety and well-being. May God be with us all. Stay Safe.”
