Lot of pairs in Bollywood had successful marriages. Among all one of the best couple is definitely Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar. I used to like Saira Banu a lot. She was vivacious, spunky and Dilip Kumar sincere, handsome. Somehow they created magic on screen together and look great as real life couple. I have been fascinated about their love story since childhood. Blogging has given me platform to share what I know.
Saira Banu waited for long time when finally Dilip Kumar noticed her that way. He was heartbroken and shattered because of her estranged relationship with Madhubala. As per Saira Banu she wasn’t just another girl smitten by Dilip’s charm, she had faith on god, on her love that one day he will be hers.
They get married in 1966 when she was twenty two and he was forty four.
She is 72 years old and still can’t stop gushing about her love for Dilip Kumar. They don’t have children and I feel there is so much love between them that there is no space for anyone else.
Saira you are not the kind of girl I want to drive around with, or be seen around with? This is what Dilip Kumar said to Saira. Shocking right but what followed afterwards will bring tears to your eyes. He said I would like to marry you, will you be my wife?
They are the filmdom’s first couple who have stayed with each other forever. Beauty Queen was used for the first time for Saira Banu when she was launched in Junglee.
Saira Banu addresses Dilip Kumar as Sahab or Kohinoor. She never cared much about her career and was ready to sacrifice for Dilip Kumar.
Dilip Kumar used to treat his wife life a child. He would stroke her head, will ask her if she had lunch or not.
I wish they stay like this forever. Their love story is definitely an inspiration for us.
