Saira Banu Breaks Silence For The First Time Since Dilip Kumar’s Demise, Shares A Heartfelt Message Ahead Of Their 56th Wedding Anniversary
Legendary actor Dilip Kumar left for heavenly abode on 7th July 2021. The actor was going through age-related health issues for the longest time. Ever since then, his wife Saira Banu has kept away from the media glare. But ahead of October 11, which would have been their 56th wedding anniversary, she remembered the late Dilip Kumar and recalled the ‘magical day’ of her life.
In a letter she wrote, Saira Banu told ETimes, “This October 11 is the 56th wedding anniversary of my Love and Kohinoor Dilip Sahib and I.” Saira Banu thanked the fans for their love and wishes in a handwritten note, “I am writing this to especially express gratitude to the multitude of well-wishers, dearest friends and family who have so lovingly and thoughtfully sent us remembrance of this magical day for both of us. Dilip Sahib and I, when time stood still and the sky was lit with a million happy sparkling stars… our wedding, the beginning of a sharing of a life of ecstatic togetherness… and now no matter what, we still walk together hand-in-hand, in our thoughts and being until the end of time.”
“Dilip Sahib has been that iconic guiding light not only for me but for all those generations who’ve stepped forward in their lives exemplified by his gracious presence and personality. Dilip Sahib is forever… Aameen. May Allah always keep him in his love and blessings… Aameen,” she added in the note.
