In order to commemorate the late Dilip Kumar’s 100th birth anniversary on December 11, a two-day film festival has been organised by the Film Heritage Foundation. The festival titled Dilip Kumar Hero of Heroes was attended by his wife Saira Banu on December 10. Saira, who has been the legendary late actor’s constant support and companion during his hard days, got emotional at the event.


The film festival which will be held over the weekend will showcase Dilip Kumar’s critically-acclaimed movies, including Aan (1952), Devdas (1955), Ram Aur Shyam (1967), and Shakti (1982). The films will be screened in over 30 cinema halls. Saira Banu, who was among the other eminent guests at the event, got emotional while seeing the poster of the late star.

The viral video shared by a paparazzi account showed an emotional Saira trying to hold back tears while caressing a poster of young-looking Dilip Kumar at the screening. All the other guests who were along with the star including Farida Jalal, Amit Kumar, and more tried to console the actress.

For the starry event, Saira wore a traditional black outfit and stood beside Farida Jalal among others as she looked sad and seemed to be missing her late husband.

Besides Saira Banu, Waheeda Rehman, Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Ramesh Sippy, Subhash Ghai, Biswajit, R Balki, and Rohan Sippy are also expected to arrive for the first day of the film festival in Mumbai.


Legendary actor Dilip Kumar died early on July 7 last year after a long and protracted illness in Mumbai. He was 98. Dilip Kumar breathed his last at 7.30 am in Mumbai’s Khar Hinduja Hospital. Dilip Kumar was laid to rest at Juhu Qabarstan in Mumbai’s Santacruz at 5 pm on the same day.

The legendary actor played prominent roles in several classic Hindi language films in the 1950s and 1960s. Some of these films include Mughal-E-Azam, Devdas, Naya Daur, Ganga Jumna, Ram aur Shyam, and others. Dilip Kumar was honoured with Padma Bhushan in 1991 and Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
