Belief in love is slowly dwindling among the youth and the definitions of words like ‘eternal’ and ‘forever’ exist only in dictionaries, not in relationships. With changing times, when love still searches to finds its meaning, the legendary Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu made us believe in the power of togetherness.
Recently, Dilipji was suffering from pneumonia and severe respiration problems. On Friday night, he was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital after he experienced a few bouts of vomiting but thankfully, his recovery went positive and steady.
And this touching photo proves that their vibrant relationship has still not aged.

Saira Banu fell in love with Dilip Kumar at the age of 12. She considered herself a normal girl who was blessed to spend her life with the superstar.
“I was not just another girl smitten by Dilip Kumar. For me, it was no castle in the air because I had given my dream the strong foundation of faith – faith in myself and faith in God.”
Recently, Dilip Kumar was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian honor. But for him, love from his fans is what keeps his spirit alive.
Saira Bhanu said:
“Materialistic awards don’t really matter much to Dilip saab. He is humility personified and has always remained modest about his achievements. Whether it is the Padma Vibhushan or Bharat Ratna, for Dilip saab it is the love of the people that matters most to him.”
What a love story. I hope my love story is eternally great as this.
