Shah Rukh Khan recently visited Dilip Kumar to wish the legend good health. Wife Saira Banu took to Twitter to share photos from the evening. She wrote, “Sahab’s mooh-bola beta visited him. Sahab’s doing much better since return from the hospital.” King Khan was accompanied by daughter Suhana. He spent considerable time with the thespian and kissed him on his forehead while leaving. However, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Saira Banu has said how SRK’s contemporaries, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan are more accessible than him.
She says that Aamir Khan is always just a call away in case of an emergency or even a request from some member of the family to a meeting. “He goes out of his way to comply with such requests and is constantly in touch. So is family friend Salim Khan and his son Salman. They often drop by, on festivals and occasions like saab’s birthday. Shah Rukh was the one who was difficult to reach over the last two-three years. When I pointed this out to him, he admitted that he has been out of the country on shoots a lot but promised to be more connected now. Saab’s taught me that it’s important to be accessible to senior actors when they are old and ailing,” says Saira, recalling visits with Dilip saab to Raj Kapoor, Om Prakash and Ashok Kumar when they were unwell. “These youngsters are good boys, God bless them.
Veteran actor Dilip Kumar was last seen in the film ‘Qila’ which released in 1998.
