Aamir has been an unchangeable presence: Saira Banu
While Aamir Khan and Dilip Kumar never worked together on a film project, Aamir Khan has always been very vocal in his admiration and appreciation of the Naya Daur actor who was active in the Hindi film industry for nearly 50 years.
Saira Banu in her latest Instagram post, shared a photo of her and Aamir Khan, with Aamir gently seated near Saira Banu’s feet. In her post caption, Saira Banu penned, “For Sahib and me, Aamir has been this unchangeable presence. To this day, Aamir still holds a deep admiration for Dilip Sahib and everything he brought to Indian Cinema. It's mutual. Sahib has always had a genuine appreciation for Aamir's acting brilliance and how he flawlessly brings characters to life on screen. I've always been moved by Aamir's artistry – not just in his films, but also in the way he's embraced the role of a family member in Sahib's and my life.”
Saira recalled an instance of Aamir’s generosity
Saira Banu also noted in her Instagram post how Aamir Khan stepped up to offer support and lend a helping hand while the actress was trying to put together Dilip Kumar’s autobiography. “It's moments like these that make you truly appreciate the kind of person he is, going beyond just the glitz and glamour of the film industry,” Saira Banu added.
