57 years ago, on October 11, Bollywood's famous couple Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar got married. To celebrate her wedding anniversary, the actress shared her "real Cinderella story". The actress shared a clip of precious moments from her wedding along with a long note on Instagram.
The note reads, "Today is our wedding anniversary on 11th October. I am writing specifically to express my gratitude to those fans and dearest friends who have always thoughtfully supported me in the journey of both Dilip Sahab and me. Sent memories of this magical day. The stars were shining in the sky, and time had stopped for millions of people. In the absence of Dilip Sahab, I spent two years sharing his stories. The stories that only I know. "
Saira Banu further wrote, 'This is the real story of Cinderella. It is very rare that a girl meets the prince of her dreams. How was my life with him…it is very difficult to describe. Just telling you this would take many pages, it would take a book. Saheb was not only a light in my life but also for all those who met him and moved forward in life. He was a great human being. He is such a book that you can never stop reading, because every day you read a new page of his life.
Talking more about the late actor's personality, Banu said, "If he had a huge personality, he was also a great human being, he was so versatile in his knowledge about everything in the world and on earth that you would never feel any trouble either." That is a book that you can never stop reading because you will be able to discover a new page of it every day. Apart from films he was interested in a wide range of subjects like Urdu and Persian poetry, anthropology, international affairs, botany, and sports. It's a side of him that has been very exciting and has made him a vibrant, exciting person."
The actress further added- "Sahab has been the iconic guiding light not only for me but for all the generations who have stepped forward in their lives, exemplified by his kind presence and personality. Dilip Sahab is forever. Allah Keep them always in your love and abiding grace. Amen!”
On July 7, 2021, the legendary actor left for his heavenly abode. However, his memories are still alive in our hearts. Sincerely, his remarkable contribution to Indian cinema.
