When the legendary actor of Indian cinema, Dilip Kumar, got admitted to the hospital, the news left thousands of his fans terrified. The 94-year-old actor complained of dehydration and was admitted to Lilavati Hospital. His health was critical during the initial days of his treatment. But, it looks like his fans prayed a lot for his good health. The veteran actor is stable now and is back home.

The Bollywood Badshah has expressed his love for Dilip Kumar often. Shah Rukh Khan has always been fond of Dilip Kumar’s acting and charm.

Last Year, when the veteran actor was honored with the Padma Vibhushan award, SRK expressed his feeling for him. Sharing that Dilip Kumar is no less than a father figure for him, Shah Rukh said,


Even words like ‘icon’ are very less for him. He is the forefather, the pillar of the film industry… Amongst the last few pillars left.

He further added,

No matter how many awards he gets, it will be less for him because of his art, beauty, Saira ji’s support. He is one of the greatest human beings apart from being the actor. I know them personally so I can say that.

However, it’s not just Shah Rukh who has a special place for Dilip Kumar in his heart. The veteran actor also loves SRK and has often appreciated his acting skills in the past. Talking about the King of romance, Dilip Kumar once said,

Shah Rukh is a charmer and a well-brought up young man. He has always been loving and respectful as well-bred Pathans are with elders. I know Saira likes him a lot.

Because of the lovely relationship that these two amazing actors share, Shah Rukh dropped by Dilip Kumar’s house as soon as he got to know that the veteran actor has been discharged from the hospital. The actor spent quality time with both Dilip Kumar and Saira Bano at their residence. The biggest fan of Dilip Kumar looked really happy meeting him in the pictures.

Even Saira Bano shared the pictures of Shah Rukh and Dilip Kumar’s meeting from the veteran actor’s Twitter handle. Calling Shah Rukh Khan Dilip Kumar’s “mooh-bola-beta”, Saira Bano posted:

Sharing a few more pictures she tweeted:

Isn’t seeing the two legends of Indian cinema together in one frame too emotional?
