Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu tied the knot in 1966
It’s been 52 years of sheer bliss and togetherness for this rock-solid couple
Dilip Kumar was 44, and Saira Banu all of 22, when they tied the knot
In 1960, Saira Banu, only 16 then, had attended the premiere of Dilip Kumar’s Mughal-e-Azam at Maratha Mandir
Saira Banu had hoped to catch a glimpse of her teenage crush, Dilip Kumar, at the show, but unfortunately that had not been possible
Saira Banu recalled their first meeting in an old interview. “When he smiled at me and remarked that I was a pretty girl, I could feel my whole being taking wing and flying rapturously. I knew somewhere deep within me that I was going to be his wife”
And marry they did. Theirs is a lovestory that has stood the test of time!
