DILIP KUMAR and SAIRA BANU
Bollywood's tragedy king Dilip Kumar, as he is popularly known, is celebrating his 47th wedding anniversary with wife Saira Banu today (October 11, 2013). The actor seems to be thankful and values their relation even more after his near-death experience last month.
Dilip Kumar married Saira Banu, who was 22 years younger than him, in 1966. But their relation has stood the test of time and today the couple wishes to acknowledge their presence in each other's lives.
The actor wrote about the same in a series of posts on his micro-blogging site. ''Each year of our marriage has been made beautiful by everybody who wish us through letters, phone calls and Internet.'' He further wrote, ''Saira and I will spend the day, in quiet acknowledgement of what we mean to each other, now more than ever Inshallah.''
Dilip Kumar also thanked his fans for their prayers and wrote, ''Praying in gratitude for all that Allah has blessed us with his bounty and benevolence. A million thank you for your prayers.''
Incidentally, it's a special day for Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan too as he celebrates his 71st Birthday today. Well, October 11 is indeed the day of the legends!
