Allah is merciful. Saira and I will complete 50 glorious years together, tomorrow; thousands of mails, messages and calls are pouring in.

Togetherness of the couple is one of the most vibrant and beautiful examples of this is the evergreen couple. They have always stayed by each other’s side through the thick and thin of the life. And, theirs is a love story that overcame an age difference of 22 years and is still going strong.


It was like a fairytale romance for the ‘king of tragedy’ Dilip Kumar (aka Yusuf Khan) and Bollywood diva Saira Banu. As the former actress herself recalls and confesses, she was all in love with Dilip Kumar right from the age of 12.

In a tabloid interview, Saira Banu said: “I was not just another girl smitten by Dilip Kumar. For me, it was no castle in the air because I had given my dream the strong foundation of faith- faith in myself and faith in God.”

When the first premiere of Dilip Kumar’s super hit tragic romance Mughal-e-Azam took place at Mumbai’s famous Maratha Mandir movie hall in 1960, Saira Banu, then only 16, had gone for the show, hoping to get a glimpse of her favourite hero in person. But she was heartbroken as Dilip Kumar was unable to come to the premiere.

When later on, Saira got the first glimpse of the superstar in person, she remembers that very first moment fondly and as clearly as ever.

Remembering that first encounter, she said in an 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.”
