Need prayers of people on Dilip Kumar

Bollywood actress Saira Banu said her husband and actor Dilip Kumar, who is hospitalised needs people's prayers to recoup. Sunday is the 94th birthday of the thespian who is now on rest.

Banu said, "He is resting and we need your 'dua' (prayers) for him to recoup well and all should be fine by his birthday. Please pray for his quick and safe recovery."

Actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha, who celebrates his birthday two days before of Dilip Kumar, said:  "This country's most talented and enduring thespian is fast recovering at Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre. We want him to be healthy and happy. He is a national treasure."


"Dilip Saab is the reason I became an actor. We all look up to him and try to be like him. I am praying for him to recover quickly," said veteran actor Dharmendra. Both Sinha and Dharmendra are close friends of the ailing actor and planning to visit him on Monday.
