Veteran actor Dilip Kumar, whose name itself is a representation of brilliance, turns a year older today. The actor celebrated his 93rd birthday with wife Saira Banu at his residence. The duo Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu tied the knot on October 11, 1966 when ‘tragedy king’ fell in love with his ‘Sagina Mahato’ co-star.
Of all the love stories in Bollywood, this fairy tale love story is one of the most cherished ones. When it comes to off-screen romance, very few celebrity couples extend a lifelong devotion towards each other. Saira Banu-Dilip Kumar makes up a perfect example of an eternal love story. Not only has the couple featured together on silver screen in various films such as ‘Duniya’, ‘Bairaag’, ‘Chhoti Bahu’ and ‘Gopi’ but they have always stood by each other through thick and thin.
When the legendary actor took to severe illness recently, Saira Banu stood by him like a rock. With every year, their shared feelings of love and romance have only increased which makes them a perfect inspiration for the couples striving to get their love life on track.
