Saira Banu: “If We’d Had A Son, He’d Look Like Shah Rukh Khan”

Actress Saira Banu has said that if she’d had a child with spouse Dilip Kumar, he’d have looked a lot like actor Shah Rukh Khan.


“I have always said that if we had a son, he might have looked like Shah Rukh. Both he and saab are a lot alike and have similar hair, which is why I like to run my fingers through Shah Rukh’s when we meet. This time he asked me, ‘Aaj aap mere baalon ko haath nahin laga rahi hain?’ I was happy to,” she said in an interview with Hindustan Times.

The actor met Dilip shortly after he was discharged from the hospital. The photos from the visit went viral, as soon as they were posted on social media.

Saira said that SRK, Aamir Khan and Salman were constantly in touch with her family. “He goes out of his way to comply with such requests and is constantly in touch. So is family friend Salim Khan and his son Salman. They often drop by, on festivals and occasions like saab’s birthday,” said Saira.

 Saira also made use of the opportunity to remind SRK that he’d become difficult to reach for the past few years.
“Shah Rukh was the one who was difficult to reach over the last two-three years. When I pointed this out to him, he admitted that he has been out of the country on shoot a lot, but promised to be more connected now. Saab’s taught me that it’s important to be accessible to senior actors when they are old and ailing.”
