Dilip Kumar First Death Anniversary: Saira Banu remembers her late husband says, ‘It has been the most difficult year of my life’

Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu were married for more than five decades before the death of the actor. Saira Banu. Since his death, his widow Saira Banu has not been doing well at all and has even been admitted to the hospital a few times. She sobs as she recalls her past and her life with the legendary actor.

Expressing how hard the past year has been for her, she said, “It has been the most difficult year of my life, Without Dilip Saab, my world is meaningless and empty. This is the only reality that I don’t want to come to terms with. There hasn’t been a single day that I have come across people who don’t remember him. From the time I wake up, seeing the empty space beside me in the bed we shared for over five and a half decades, till night falls, I have to live with the knowledge that I should consider myself very fortunate that I had my Yousuf Saab with me for 56 years.”


Further, she spoke about how she considered herself lucky to fall in love with the late actor. She said, “Having said that, I must admit that I consider myself very fortunate that I had my Yousuf with me for 56 years and more. The whole world now knows I fell in love with him at the age of 12 and I grew up with the dream tucked away in my mind that he alone is the perfect man for me. When the dream came true, I knew I was not his only admirer and that I had jumped the long queue of women who were hoping to be Mrs. Dilip Kumar. There were countless fans and actors and technicians and students of cinema who looked up to him as their guru.”
