The provincial government in Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has decided to buy the ancestral house of veteran actor Dilip Kumar so that they can conserve the historic building. Kumar’s wife and former actor Saira Banu has welcomed the move.

While speaking to ET Times, Banu said, “I wish the provincial government success in its efforts and sincerely hope that this time the dream comes true.”

“It has come up so many times in the past, and I have appreciated the tenacity with which the government is pursuing the mission of turning the house into a museum for the public to visit and feel the vintage charm of the house where Dilip Saheb grew up like any bright boy,” Saira Banu concluded.
