Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu are epitome of love. They have been married for more than five decades and the kind of love and dedication they have for each other is marvellous. Legendary actor Dilip will be celebrating his 98th birthday on December 11. However this year there would be no lavish bash or celebration.

Saira revealed that owing to the demise of Dilip’s two Brothers, this year there would be no celebration. She also cited the veteran actor’s ailing health as one of the reasons why they won’t be celebrating his birthday.

In an interview with Mid-Day, Sair Banu revealed that generally, she arranges for a lavish bash for her husband but this year there won’t be any. “We have had a catastrophe this year. Dilip sahab lost his two brothers. He doesn’t keep well, neither do I. It’s a difficult time for us, so there is no question of a big celebration. We will simply thank the Lord for the gift of life and health,” Saira told Mid-Day.
