Dilip Kumar turns 93, to have a quiet birthday
As he turns 93 on Friday, legendary actor Dilip Kumar will have a quiet birthday celebration as a mark of solidarity towards the victims of the Chennai deluge.
“We will have a quiet birthday this year with family only. He is saddened by the tragedy in Chennai. It’s a big tragedy and we don’t think it is right to celebrate anything,” said Kumar’s wife Saira Bano.
Even otherwise, Saira is not in favour of having a bash on the thespian’s birthday, as she feels that whenever his special day is celebrated, the veteran actor falls sick.
“I think whenever we celebrate his birthday, he falls sick. I feel there is an evil eye, as soon after after the celebrations he has health issues,” she said. Dilip Kumar made his debut as an actor in the film Jwar Bhata in 1944.
