The 77-year-old actress, who was married to legendary actor Dilip Kumar for 54 glorious years, lost her love, her dear husband on July 7, this year to old age related problems at the age of 99. During all these years, Saira not only gave her beloved sahib the strength and love but also took complete care of him during his bed-ridden day.
Talking about Dilip sahib’s health in an interview 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.”
Head-over-heals in love with the dashing and most illegible man of the era, Saira Banu has always confessed her love for Dilip Kumar. Once she had reportedly said that many women wanted to marry Sahib, but he chose her every time. Saira’s love for Dilip Kumar was so intense that the actress sacrificed her acting career to be a homemaker in 1976. Saira had once confessed that she had a huge crush on Dilip Kumar and wanted to be his wife ever since she was a teenager.
