Saira, who has worked in films like “Sagina” and “Gopi” with her husband, married Dilip Kumar in 1966. She has been a constant pillar of support for her husband, who is 22 years older than her. Dilip Kumar, 95, was admitted in a hospital here last week to get treated for recurrent pneumonia. He was discharged on Thursday, and has been advised complete rest and isolation for a few days to prevent infection.
