Legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu have left to perform Umrah.  On Wednesday evening, Dilip Kumar was seen at the airport with his wife Saira Banu and a few attendants, leaving for Saudi Arabia to set a pilgrimage. Their few relatives would be with them.

On early Wednesday Dilip Kumar took to Twitter, to express his joy at performing the Umrah pilgrimage, “Allah has been kind that he’s given me the strength to go on Umrah (pilgrimage) with Saira, Asif, Faisal… My doctor friends, few relatives are also accompanying me to Umrah. Keep me in your prayers.”

Umrah is a holy pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Muslims can perform Umrah at any point in time of the year.

Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu will stay in Saudi Arabia for 10 to 15 days. Earlier Aamir Khan performed Hajj with his mother last year. He fulfilled his promise that he made with his mother.

Aamir Khan and his mother’s Hajj visit went off so smoothly, we pray that all Muslims have a successful and peaceful Umrah.

Dilip Kumar’s career has spanned over six decades; this legendary star has fascinated the audience with his wonderful acting skills. Recently, Saira Banu arranged Dilip Kumar’s 90th birthday celebration.
