Dilip Kumar to have a quiet 95th birthday

Dilip Kumar to have a  quiet 95th birthday

New Delhi, Dec 11 (UNI) Legendary actor Dilip Kumar, who turned 95 on Monday, would have low key celebration on his birthday this year, owing to his ill health.

The thespian, who has enthralled cinegoers over the decades and inspired many generations of actors, have been having a grand get-together every year, with family and friends thronging his residence.

Taking to Twitter, his wife Saira Banu said, 'every year on Saab's birthday our house is open all day for friends and family to come and spend quality time with Dilip Saab. But this year it will be bit restricted as doctors have advised Saab to be protected from any infection.

'What are we planning for the birthday, I am being asked repeatedly. Well, for those who don't know what we have been doing every year-it’s a day when our residence turns into a gorgeous fairyland with flowers and floral arrangements from loving visitors which means a lot.



'If you have read Dilip Saab's autobiography you would be familiar with his quote.... that the warmth of the clasp of the hand of strangers who approach him to tell him how much they liked his work is bigger than any award for him.,' she said.

Thanking fans and well wishers for praying for Dilip's health, she said 'On Dilip Saab's birthday, as we get together as a family with Saab's brothers, sisters, relatives and some close friends, my thoughts reach out to all the wonderful fans and well wishers for the duas and prayers for Dilip Saab. A million thanks.'



Dilip Kumar has not been keeping well, of late with doctors diagnosing him with pneumonia. However, he is much better now.
