Saira ji had shared the most heartfelt note on Dilip saab’s 96th birthday. Her note started by calling her husband ‘her Kohinoor’. It stated, “He is my world, my love, my soul, my Kohinoor, the most precious gift from Allah to me. By now, the whole world knows how my desire to be his wife began at the age of twelve when I was a school girl studying at a private school in London. I lived with my dream day after day, praying for my dream to come true while my mother, grandmother and brother imagined it was an infatuation and I would get over it when I grew up to adulthood.” (Don't Miss: Hina Khan Bakes A Lovely Star-Shaped Cake For Birthday Boy Rocky Jaiswal, Picture Inside)

It could be further read as, "Those, who have read Yousuf Sahab’s autobiography, have written to me to say that the most engaging chapters in it are those where Yousuf Sahab has described how he courted me in his own dignified way, proposed marriage to me and sought my mother’s consent followed by a fortnight-long dream-like, fairytale romance that culminated in a quick and sensational announcement of our nikah.”

Saira Banu went on to share how her dream of marrying Dilip saab finally came true, “The dream I treasured came true on October 11, 1966. I began a new life with a man who was raised in a large Pathan family by a loving mother and a physically and emotionally strong father, a superstar adored by millions of cinema lovers, highly respected by the motion picture industry for the excellence he consistently pursued in his work and above all a man whose inherent goodness, chivalry and humility showed up in everything he did.”

In her letter, Saira ji confessed that if there is one person who has taught her more about life than anyone else, it’s her husband, Dilip Kumar. Saira ji retorted, “I was consciously and unconsciously imbibing his qualities and adding to the values that had already strictly been instilled in me by my mother and grandmother. It made me very happy one day when in a casual conversation Yousuf Sahab revealed that the one crucial factor that egged him on to choose me to be his wife was the manner in which I had been brought up. He had noticed that I was respectful of the core values of our country’s culture and secular beliefs despite my shifting to London in my early impressionable years.”

Saira ji also shared how she spends time with Dilip saab now. She wrote, “I am often asked how we spend our time now. I would say that if anything has changed in our sharing of the simple joys of life that the Almighty has blessed us with it is only the way we enjoy each other’s company. To those who wish to know how to preserve the joy of togetherness and nourish a relationship with it in the years when aches and pains, unpleasant twists and turns in health cause inevitable anxieties and fears I would say that it is difficult but not impossible to retain the glow if one works at it with a complete trust in the might of the Almighty to grant prayers that go straight from the heart to Him.” (You May like: Malaika Arora's Cryptic Reply When Beau Arjun Kapoor Shared That He Is Enjoying A Day Off With Self)
