Legendary actor Dilip Kumar, who turns 93 today (December 11), will have a quiet birthday celebration as a mark of solidarity towards the victims of the Chennai deluge. "We will have a quiet birthday this year with family
only. He is saddened by the tragedy in Chennai. It's a big tragedy and we don't think it is right to celebrate anything," Kumar's wife Saira Bano told PTI.
Even otherwise, Saira is not in favour of having a bash
on the thespian's birthday, as she feels that whenever his special day is celebrated, the veteran actor falls sick. "I think whenever we celebrate his birthday, he falls sick. I feel there is an evil eye, as soon after after the celebrations he has health issues," she said.
Some of his most memorable performances include ‘Devdas’, ‘Andaz’, ‘Kranti’ and 'Mughal-e-Azam' among others. Take a look at his life in pics. (Express archive photo)
