Hina Khan remembers Dilip Kumar; says, ‘You were my dad’s favourite, mom cried’
Legendary star Dilip Kumar is no more with us. The actor passed away on Wednesday morning after being ill for many years. His last rites will take place in Mumbai on Wednesday evening. With a career spanning over six decades, Dilip Kumar was called the ‘Tragedy King’ of Bollywood. His realistic acting and subjects connected to the audience like no one else. From Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, to Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and others paid their last respects to the late star.
Hina Khan joins the list of actors who shared their heartfelt tribute to the actor. Hina Khan also shared that Dilip Kumar was her dad’s favourite actor and that her mother too cried after hearing about his demise. She wrote, “Rest In Peace Legend. You were my Dads all time favourite. Mom Cried. Have heard your songs everyday in our lives. You will be missed. Prayers and strength to the family.”
Hina Khan recently lost her father to heart attack. She was the closest to her dad and has been trying to keep up and come to terms with the huge loss.
Speaking of Dilip Saab, the actor is survived by his wife Saira Banu. The couple had no children after Saira Banu suffered a miscarriage in 1972. Both Dilip Ji and Saira Banu had decided to not have a child post that incident.
Confirming his demise, family friend, Faisal Farooqui, had written via Dilip Kumar’s official Twitter handle, “With a heavy heart and profound grief, I announce the passing away of our beloved Dilip Saab, few minutes ago. We are from God and to Him we return.”
RIP Dilip Saab.
