Saira and Dilip were married for 55 years. On July 7, 2021, Dilip who would have turned 99 on Saturday, died due to prolonged illness. 

In an interview with PTI Saira talked about how she is dealing with the loss. She said,“I will do the prayers, remember him and I want the day to be very quiet. I want to visit the Juhu garden (Juhu Qabrastan) where he is (buried)."

“The house would be full of flowers, there were times when bouquets would be on all the floors, steps and everywhere in the house and we would not have enough room for it. It used to be that wonderful. He was so loved by people. He still is,” she said.

She described Dilip's love for clothing and cooking and said, “He was very much into good clothing. And good food and he was a marvelous cook too. Whenever he would want to, he would try (to make) new things like soup and other items." 

"He is a man who is so alive and vibrant. It is a terrible vacuum for all of us," she added.

Talking about their married life, she added “Every marriage has ups and downs but we had a wonderful happy time together. He has been so supportive in my life. It has been my good fortune to have shared my life with him. I will always treasure him. He will always and always be alive for me."
