dilip kumar turns 91

Legendary actor Dilip Kumar, who turned 91 Wednesday, will have a quiet celebration with close friends, family and a team of doctors, says his wife Saira Banu.

"I only want to thank Allah for whatever he has given us. We will have a great celebration with family members and around 30 to 40 doctors who looked after him. They are like family to us," Saira Banu, who has been married to the veteran for 47 years, told IANS.

The star of films like "Devdas (1955)", Madhumati", and "Mughal E Azam" started receiving wishes from Tuesday itself.

"His day has been wonderful so far...wishes started pouring in since last night. He is now tired a bit as he has been busy since morning. He is taking some rest right now," she said.

Saira, who worked with Dilip Kumar in "Gopi" and "Sagina", has organised a garden party at their Pali Hill residence in the evening.

This year is extra special, thanks to the date - 11/12/13.

"It's all the more a special day as it is 11/12/13 today. I exactly wished him at 8 hours 9-minutes and 10 seconds ...so it's 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13."

Talking about Dilip Kumar's health, Saira said he has become little weak but he is healthy.

"He was in the hospital some time back as you all know so he is a little weak, but by god's grace he is healthy," she said.

When asked what did she gift him on his birthday, she said: "Dilip sahab is not fond of many things. He only believes in humanity, so I gifted him lots of love and each year the love is only getting bigger and bigger."
