Saira Banu Fondly Remembers Her First Meeting with Shah Rukh Khan, Highlights His Support After Dilip Kumar's Passing

Legendary Bollywood actress Saira Banu took a stroll down memory lane as she shared heartfelt anecdotes about her interactions with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. In a touching Instagram post, Saira reminisced about her first encounter with Shah Rukh Khan and the remarkable support he offered during the trying period following the passing of her late husband, the iconic actor Dilip Kumar.

Saira Banu posted a video on her Instagram account, featuring moments with Dilip Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and actor Ravi Kishan. In the video, Dilip Kumar signed a large poster of the classic film “Mughal-e-Azam,” while Shah Rukh Khan warmly embraced him, engaging in a brief conversation as Ravi Kishan observed with a smile. A photograph showed Shah Rukh Khan seated between Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu on a couch. With a hand on Dilip’s, Shah Rukh exchanged smiles with Saira, creating a heartwarming image of camaraderie.

Reflecting on her first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan, Saira Banu shared, “The first time I saw Shah Rukh was when many stars had met for a function…I immediately remarked that he seemed shy and reticent to come forward….and I noticed that he looked so much like my Shahenshah Dilip Sahib…I said if my son had been there he would have been just like him.”

Saira further noted how Shah Rukh’s hair resembled that of Dilip Kumar’s, and she recounted a charming ritual between them. “One vivid memory I have is of a chance encounter with Shah Rukh, where he humbly bowed before me, seeking blessings. As I placed my hand on his head and ran my fingers through his hair, I couldn’t help but remark how it resembled that of Dilip Sahib,” she shared. This heartfelt connection led to a unique tradition between the two, where Shah Rukh would lower his head for Saira to offer her blessings.

Describing Shah Rukh Khan as a remarkable actor and an exceptionally kind and considerate individual, Saira Banu spoke of his willingness to support her endeavors. “Once, there was a special event for my company, and I had a strong desire for Shah Rukh to do an interview. However, Shah Rukh’s hectic work schedule seemed almost insurmountable. Yet, with just a single text message from me, I was amazed to find him at my doorstep within a mere hour, willing to oblige and support my endeavor,” she recounted.

In a deeply emotional moment, Saira Banu revealed Shah Rukh Khan’s pivotal role during the challenging time of Dilip Kumar’s passing. “On the 7th of July, when Dilip Sahib slipped into a deep slumber, unresponsive to my voice, leaving me burdened with the ache of his absence, Shah Rukh emerged as a beacon of solace. In that moment, his affection for the ‘Kohinoor of Hindustan,’ Dilip Sahib, shone brightly as he was among the very first to offer his comforting presence in the face of adversity.”

Saira Banu also shared a touching detail about Shah Rukh Khan’s admiration for Dilip Kumar. “What truly speaks volumes about Shah Rukh’s admiration for Sahib is when he arrived at our home to get the ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ poster signed by Sahib, and I believe that it’s kept in his private theater. It reflects his deep-rooted respect and affection for the cinematic legends who came before him,” she concluded.

Saira Banu’s heartfelt words and cherished memories of her interactions with Shah Rukh Khan offer a touching glimpse into the bond between two generations of Bollywood legends, highlighting the enduring respect and camaraderie that transcend time in the Indian film industry.
