Saira Banu recently lost her husband Dilip Kumar. The legendary actor passed away at the age of 98 due to age-related issues. Saira and Dilip Kumar were married for 54 glorious years and their love story will continue to inspire generations to come.
During all these years, Saira has been a backbone to Dilip sahab. She not only took complete care of him during his bed-ridden days but also kept his fans on social media updated about him.
In a recent interview with ETimes, Saira had 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.”
Elaborating further, she had added, “It is out of love and not duress that I look after Dilip saab. 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.”
Saira Banu, who has always been a self-confessed fan of Dilip, had reportedly said that many women wanted to marry Dilip, but he chose her every time. The actress, who ditched her acting career to be a homemaker in 1976, said that she wanted to be Dilip’s wife ever since she was a teenager, and once she made up her mind, nothing could deter her.
