Saira Banu reveals how Dilip Kumar proposed to her, reminisces romantic moments during the rains with him | Hindi Movie News

Saira Banu who recently joined Instagram on Dilip Kumar’s death anniversary on July 7, just makes everyone smile with her anecdotes about the legendary actor on the gram. She also loves going back in time, thus cherishing the magical moments gone by. The rains make us all nostalgic and bring some or the other memory. It’s no different for Banu who has treated us with some magical rain memories with Dilip Kumar.
The actress dropped a picture of him and started off by saying, “Rain rain go to Spain!” As a 7 year old girl child schooling in London, we all chanted this line in chorus with my friends ceremoniously! Heaven knows why but this was so common with the erratic English weather… you never know when the sun shines and next the rain. This was the common chant with us kids. As for my family here back in Mumbai and later on as I wedded Dilip Sahib… we all loved the rain.”
She recalled that earlier they would drink the water of the first rain showers. “The first shower was always a celebration and each one of us would rush to our garden terraces to soak up in the first downpour of the season and we would place huge drums of utensils to collect the pure pristine water!
Now, I am told that there are concerns about drinking rainwater because new recent studies show that there are plastic contamination environmental pollutants and bacterial parasites in the water that can make you sick,” expressed the actress.
Saira further revealed that it was during one of these rainy nights that Dilip Kumar proposed her. She revealed, “Sahib loved the rain and if he was out of the house in a meeting and there would be a first shower…he would immediately call me with delight, “Saira it’s raining!” Infact, many years ago as we walked by Juhu Beach in the quiet of a wondrous night, there was a sudden shower of rain and he protectively took off his jacket and draped it around my shoulders… that was the magical night that we sat in his car and he asked me… “Will you marry me?”
Later, ‘The Tragedy King’ as he is called, had bought a land in Maharashtra. Saira added, “In later years, he happily bought a beautiful land at a hill station in Maharashtra… Sahib was always a farmer at heart, the proud son of a much respected Pathan fruit merchant in Peshawar. We would walk miles in the rain on the stony and green land geared up with our umbrellas dressed protectively in our mackintoshes, picking up shiny grazed pebbles and throwing them as far as we could in competition outdoing each other… of course, Sahib would always win… I always ran and collected these stones… and I still have and cherish each stone that he flew to the wind.”
