MUMBAI: For the first time in the last four days, Mrs Dilip Kumar aka Saira Banu was seen smiling.
Yes , Dilip Saab is recovering, and there’s a surge of relief and joy among his near and dear ones.
Says Dilip Saab and Sairaji’s close friend journalist Udaya Tara Nayar, “Dilip Saab is recovering fast. His pulse is much more regular and he’s also eating. Today he was smiling and speaking to people close to him. We took a picture of him from his hospital bed.And you have to agree he is looking radiant and not a day older than 60.”
Saira, we hear, has eaten a full meal for the first time today since her husband fell ill. But she and Dilip Saab’s family are dismayed by the false information on his health status being spread.
Says a close friend of the family, “Even some responsible sections of the film industry who should know better spread wrong and damaging information on him. Allah Dilip Saab ko lambi umar den.”
