Dilip Kumar rubbishes reports that he will have a grand birthday bash, But he also insisted that he and wife Saira Banu are yet to recover from the demise of Balasaheb Thackeray, Yash Chopra and Rajesh Khanna. The 89 Year old legendary actor confirmed on his Blog "It is appalling how few in the print media take the liberty nowadays to print quotes that spring from the imagination of the scribe. It shocked me and Saira to read newspaper reports with imaginary quotes from Saira about plans to celebrate my birthday! We have yet to recover from the shock of the passing away of my dear friend Yash Chopra who was by my side when I blew away the candles on my birthday cake last year and stayed on till the wee hours, sharing the family's happiness."
Speaking about late Balasaheb Thackeray, The actor further added "We are deeply grieving the passing of Balasaheb Thackeray who I always thought was not a Tiger but a Lion." Once in an interview, Late Balasaheb Thackeray had also expressed how he and Dilip Kumar used to celebrate their friendship together long ago.
