When contacted, Dharmendra said that Saira Banu and he had a small talk on the phone about four days back, when Saira Banu had returned his missed call. “I couldn’t reach her and she had called back. She told me that she has not been keeping well.”
Dharmendra then said that he did not ask her the details but senses that it is a very tough time for Saira Banu after Dilip Kumar’s demise. “I did not ask too many questions but you can understand how she must be feeling after Dilip Kumar passed away. Sab kuch khaali khaali lag raha hoga (She must be feeling the void).”
Dharmendra added that he will try calling her some time to inquire about her health and wished the senior actress a speedy recovery.
