Saira was completely mesmerized by his charms.

Unlike other girls who fell for him, Saira felt different. She said that she knew that she'll be married to him one day. And Saira ji's mother Naseem Banu was an important factor in their love story as she acted as a cupid for them. And finally one day, the thing that Saira was waiting for, happened and Dilip Saab proposed to her at a long drive. Saira instantly said yes and both tied the knot when Saira was 22 years old.
