Love!

When Dilip Kumar married Saira Banu, she was only 22 and Dilip was 44 years old. They are stiill together after 45 years. Saira Banu says: "Mujeh is se koi dilchaspi nahi ke aap ko mujh se kitni muhabbat hai! Jo meri muhabbat hai woh hum dono ke liye kafi hai"  (ye bhi muhabbat ka aik khubsurat rang hai)

Not unusual to see this much difference of age being "successful" marriage. But Dilip had asked the hand of Madhu Bala before which her father turned down even though they were all Peshawari and Muslims. Unfortunately MadhuBala ended up marrying a hindu afterwards which I do not know how her father allowed. Madhubala died with Mitral Stenosis, I am not sure why surgery was not done at appropriate time. She was no doubt pretty. Of course Saira bano is pretty too and being the daughter of Nasim (known as Paree chehra Nasim in her days)

Very Interesting info.I didn't know that MadhuBala hailed from Peshawar too.

Only thing I know is, while "Mughle-Azam" was in making, they stopped talking. The slap in movie is real and Dilip hit her hard. It was very hard for director to finish the movie.

Madhu Bala was not exactly Peshari but she was born in Dehli as "Mumtaz Jahan and it is said her father (Ataullah Khan) belonged to Afghan nawabi family and before moving to Mumbai was in Peshawar.

Cool...

2 days ago, I was talking to an Indian physician friend about her and he mentioned that she made lot of waves in Hollywood also, as it was unusual for an Indian actress to have so much pink cheeks, but later it was attributed to her polycythemia vera secondary to VSD..

You cd accept when she says its love, but she does not have any respect for him. It's apparent in every public outing they make. She's intolerant of his senile unawareness.

I don't know! We may be getting judgemental here. Its hard to take care of a sick and old person. Sometime irritation may get visible in public...
