Late actor, Dilip Kumar's sister, Farida is hospitalised. The family has not yet talked about it, but according to reports, Farida has not been keeping well. And as they say in times of need, family comes first, and so Dilip Kumar's wife, Saira Banu and her family has been taking care of her. However, the yesteryear actress has not been keeping well after the demise of Dilip Kumar.
For those who don't know, Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu had an age gap of 22 years, yet it never became a problem in their 'happily ever after'. The beautiful Saira Banu had always been a pillar of support in the life of Dilip Kumar, and there was never a day when they had fought. While every girl was in love with the superstar, his heart was beating only for the love of his life, Saira.
Recently, a report in The Times of India revealed that Farida had been admitted to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital for the last seven days. Dilip Kumar and Farida's nephews, Saqib and Imran have been largely looking after Farida. Saira Banu is also visiting the hospital. Saira also heaps praises for her nephew, Saqib and Imran and their families, who always come in difficult times.
Earlier, in October 2021, Saira Banu had revealed the emotional turmoil she was going through as she had celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary all alone without Dilip Kumar. She had said:
"This October 11 is the 56th wedding anniversary of my Love and Kohinoor Dilip Sahib. 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."
For the unversed, Dilip Kumar had taken his last breath on July 7, 2021, after suffering from a prolonged illness.
