Dua and davaa are what are keeping the Thespian Dilip Kumar alive.
According to a well-informed source the Thespian is all but lost to the world. “He cannot recognize anyone, sometimes not even his own wife Sairaji. He can no longer walk, or speak. He has to be carried to the bathroom. For all practical purposes he’s oblivious to the world.”
According to the source keeping the “national treasure” somehow alive is an obsession for the Thespian’s wife.
Says a very close friend of the couple, “It is true Yusuf Saab(Dilip Kumar) doesn’t talk or recognize anyone. He has been this way for ten years now.But Sairaji is spending all her savings in keeping him alive. She has nothing else to live for.”
Scary situation, this. One hopes India’s greatest actor would soon be allowed to go in peace.
