Saira Banu says no celebration for Dilip Kumar’s birthday.


Veteran actor Dilip Kumar is all set to ring in his 98th birthday on Friday, December 11, but his actor-wife Saira Banu has said there will be no celebration this year. Dilip’s birthday parties are not too elaborate but Saira likes to organise a small but lavish bash for the family and their close friends.

Dilip lost his two brothers, Aslam Khan and Ahsan Khan, this year to Covid-19. Both Ahsan and Aslam had tested positive for coronavirus. Ahsan, 90, also had heart disease, hypertension, and Alzheimer’s. He died in September. Earlier in August, the thespian’s youngest brother Aslam died at Lilavati Hospital.
