FAST FOR­WARD

Stardust (English) - - BLAST FROM THE PAST -

What a woman, what an in­ter­view – so re­fresh­ing, so can­did! They must have bro­ken the mould when they made her. Yes, we are talk­ing about the in­cred­i­ble Saira Banu. Per­haps the NewGen may not be aware of Saira Banu’s prow­ess as an ac­tor of the ‘60s, for these days one sees her only be­sides an ail­ing Dilip Ku­mar who at the age of 91 con­stantly flits in and out of hos­pi­tal. Of course, at the age of 72, Saira Banu still looks amaz­ingly re­gal and grace­ful, and one can see what an amaz­ing beauty she once was. Her bond with her Yusuf Sir has spanned many decades – of course there were some hic­cups when Dilip Ku­mar briefly mar­ried Asma but all the prob­lems seem to be all sorted out. Saira Banu re­cently then in the news for fight­ing a long and ar­du­ous bat­tle with a man who usurped her bun­ga­low. But the judge­ment was in her favour and the le­gal bat­tle won. Saira Banu is happy and re­lieved and is now busy giv­ing her Yusuf Saab all her time and love. Words: Su­mita Chakraborty
