A lot of people were waiting eagerly for the biography for the legendary actor Dilip Kumar’s biography to get released on his 91st birthday, 11/12/13 as was announced and planned previously. But unfortunately it could not happen as the veteran actor has apparently fallen ill and was not in a position to move out of his house. It will however happen very soon, sometime by the beginning of next year.
The biography is being written by Uday Tara Nayar, a close friend of Dilip Kumar and is nearly done.
Speaking about how it got postponed, Saira Banu spoke to the media saying, “Actually, we were planning to launch Dilip Sahab’s biography today (on his birthday) and everybody said that it is a very special date, but unfortunately, we could not as he fell ill. Now, Inshallah, we will launch the biography in January end or in the beginning of February next year. We have celebrated this birthday quietly with close friends, family and a team of doctors because we don’t want to put much strain on him.”
This book is going to be very special, it will be divided into two parts and will have a lot of unknown things about his childhood and his love affair with Saira Banu along with some rare pictures of the actor. This is not the first biography of his as Vinita Lamba, Sanjit Nawrekar and Lord Meghnad Desai have all written Dilip Kuamr’s biography previously.
