In December last year, Dilip Kumar celebrated his 95th birthday with wife Saira Banu and friends at home while his 94th birthday celebrations were at Lilavati Hospital – he was being treated for fever and a swollen leg.
Saira Banu often operates from Dilip Kumar’s Twitter and updates fans and followers about the actor’s health. In July this year, Saira Banu tweeted about attending a function “without” Dilip Kumar in a heart-warming tweet. She also shared a health update of sorts.
Dilip Kumar married Saira Banu in 1966 and they have featured together in films such as Sagina Mahato, Chhoti Bahu, and Duniya. Dilip Kumar, who was born as Mohammad Yusuf Khan, is best known for his starring roles in films like Madhumati, Devdas, Mughal-e-Azam, Ganga Jamuna, Ram Aur Shyam, and Naya Daur in a career spanning over six decades.
