Legendary actor Dilip Kumar’s ill health has been a concern to many. Fans keep pouring him with speedy recovery messages on social media. Saira Banu, who handles his account, in return shares some sweet pictures of the veteran star. And recently, in a series of adorable tweets for her husband, the actress wrote about how much she missed her ‘kohinoor’ in a recent social appearance she made without him.
29 June'18 was one of the RARE times I attended a social event without my Kohinoor (my Sahab) besides me. I went for the nikah of Nida, daughter of Asif Farooqui. I felt lonely without Sahab, but was overjoyed to bless the couple and interact with so many of you. -SBK— Dilip Kumar (@TheDilipKumar) July 12, 2018
