A quiet 95th Birthday for Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu

Indian cinema's legend Dilip Kumar turned 95 on Monday. Birthday wishes poured from across the world for the beloved actor, that hasnt been well for the past few days.



BT spoke to Saira Banu about his birthday and she said, "He was down with pneumonia and there was a constant fear that we may have to rush him to the hospital, but God has been kind. Dilip saab is better. He has been resting and since he is susceptible to infection, we spent the day with just the family. Saab's brothers, nephews and nieces came over and it was a quiet birthday celebration.

Amitabh Bachchanji and Dharamji messaged us and not just celebs, all our wellwishers called up to check on him. The fact that so many people continue to love and think of him is humbling and overwhelming. It melted my heart."

Here's wishing Yusuf saab, the kernel in the talent of Bollywood, good health and lots of love.
