Veteran stars Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu’s love has stood the test of times. The couple married in 1966, and the bond between them is growing stronger and stronger. They have an age gap of 22 years. Recently, in an interview, Saira Banu talked about the love of her life and how she has stood with Dilip Sahab like a rock.
The Junglee also revealed some unknown secrets about their love life. Apparently, Dilip Kumar had to leave his engagement ceremony when he got to know that his ex-girlfriend had popped sleeping pills. Speaking to Times of India, Saira Banu said, “The day we got engaged, one girl- not from the industry- who was supposedly his girlfriend and had been almost up to the altar with him, took sleeping pills. Dilip saab had to rush to her and make her understand that he’s in love with me. He pacified her and came back to the engagement ceremony. I got sort of used to such things. There were girls who would stand in front of his car and wish that the car runs over them.”

“I never minded stories of the beautiful women associated with Dilip saab. I had placed my entire trust in him. My marriage was a dream come true for me. I had pasted his pictures in my room even before we got married. The only other person who made it to those walls was Rock Hudson”, she added.
Banu also gave an update about Kumar’s health. “He’s not too well. He’s weak. At times, he walks into the hall and back to his room. His immunity is low. Pray for his welfare. We are grateful to God for each day”.
She continued, “It is out of love and not duress that I look after Dilip saab. I am not looking for praises to be called a devoted wife. Just to touch him and cuddle him is the world’s best thing that’s happening to me. I adore him and he is my breath itself.”
