Dilip Kumar thanks his fans for anniversary wishes!

The lovely veteran couple of Bollywood – Kumar and Saira Banu is enjoying a quiet 47th anniversary at their palatial Bandra home

Dilip Kumar never allowed wife Saira Banu to hold his hands in public, but 47 years of marriage have changed many things, said Banu lovingly of her dearest husband Dilip Kumar on his 90th birthday last year. Today, the powerful couple celebrates 47 years of being together though the celebrations for the special occasion will be quiet given the superstar’s health.

On this special day, B-town’s tragedy king took to Twitter to thank his fans for showering their undying love and support. “Each year of our marriage has been made beautiful by everybody who wishes us through letters, phone calls and Internet,” tweeted Dilip saab.

Saira and I will spend the day, in quiet acknowledgement of what we mean to each other, now more than ever Inshallah. Praying in gratitude for all that Allah has blessed us with his bounty and benevolence. A million thank you for your prayers,” the thespian added.
