Veteran actor Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu were recently felt an utter shock after Saira ji started receiving calls and messages inquiring Dilip Kumar. Fortunately, it turned out that this rumour was nothing but a hoax. The former actor himself took it to Twitter, micro blogging website and put all these rumours to rest. He thanked all his fans for praying for his health and revealed that his health is actually very much better this Ramazan. Here’s what he wrote, “I’ve been away from this medium for sometime; my heart has been with all of you. Your greetings, dua’s and wishes have touched me immensely. Allah’s mercy has been upon us, my health has been much better this Ramazan. Could not fast due to regular medication and irregular sleep. God’s infinite mercy has been upon Saira and I. Your love and adulation for us can never be thanked enough.”
In a series of tweets, he clarified that he is doing really well and is yet to receive many awards and honours. “Still get so many invitations to accept awards and honors. My health makes it difficult to travel and be there personally, but thank you! Murari Bapuji sent the Natraj Award from Mahua. Saira received it in April 2017 at our home in Pali Hill. Thank you again!” he wrote.
Well, before you also fall prey to this baseless rumour, let us tell you that it is yet again a death hoax. And it is not the first time a Bollywood celeb has found himself at the receiving end of death hoax. Death rumours of Amitabh Bachchan. Kadar Khan, Fareeda Jalal, Aishwarya Rai and many more celebs have often taken toll quite now and then on social media. In fact, it is not the first time Dilip Kumar proved victim to his death rumours.
We wish you a very long, happy and healthy life Dilip and Saira ji.
