I touched base with his devoted wife Saira lBanu and here’s what she messaged back, “He was a bit unwell so we are here for investigations and treatment ...all is well pray for his good health.”
The entire nation prays for the national treasure to healthy and safe at home.The other national treasure of Indian cinema Lata Mangeshkar, whom Dilip Saab calls his ‘Choti Bahen’ is concerned about her brother’s health. “The Covid situation is such that any exposure to the outside can be very dangerous specially for the older people.
