Those close to her have revealed that Saira ji has been finding it difficult to cope with the loss of Dilip Kumar who passed away on July 7. A long phase of her life had revolved around him, and now, in Dilip saab’s absence, things are seemingly tough for the actress who had married the thespian when she was all of 22.
Ever since the past few years, it was Saira ji who kept fans and the media updated about the late actor’s health. Every time the legendary actor was hospitalised, she would be by his side throughout. When he passed away in July, pictures of her breaking down as she hugged Shah Rukh Khan–whom the duo considered to be a son–broke everyone’s hearts. The actress recently turned 77 on August 23.
