Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu are the evergreen couple of Bollywood. The duo took their marriage vows on 11 October 1966 overcoming the 22 year age gap between them. Saira has many times confessed about how she loved Dilip Kumar from the age of 12. In one of her interviews she said, “I am still head over heels in love with my Kohinoor, Yousuf Sahab, the way I was when I first felt attracted to him as a 12-year-old. Ours has been as good and enduring a marriage as so many marriages that have survived the ups and downs for four decades. No marriage is perfect. How can it be, when as human beings we are not perfect? It is mutual love, respect and adoration that keep a marriage ticking.”
