Saira Banu Exclusive: “I Am Not Doing Well”

Since the great Dilip Kumar passed  away on 7 July, 2021 , his  better-half Saira Banu’s  health condition has been a matter  of  immense  concern  for the couple’s close friends  like  Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi and Shatrughan Sinha.

All three told this  writer  that they’ve been  trying to reach out to  the Thespian’s inconsolable  widow. But to no avail.

Recently  the  yesteryears’ superstar Mumtaz on visit to Mumbai,   dropped   in  unannounced at the Khans’ bungalow on Pali Hill . But Sairaji  was unavailable.

Says  Shatrughan Sinha, “I’ve been very  close  to  the  couple  for many  years. But with Yusuf Saab’s passing away I  have lost touch  with  Sairaji. I have heard  alarming reports  about her  health. But have been unable to verify.”

Aftter  weeks of  effort I  finally got  to connect with Sairaji who admitted she  was  not in good health.

Sairaji’s exact response to my  concerned message:  “Salaams, Subhash.I am not doing well.So have not been in touch.Thank you for your message of care  and kindness. God bless. Aap sab ki dua chahiye.”

We are with  you , Sairaji. Losing the  reason to live after 50 years  of togetherness is  not easy. We  feel for you.
