Late actor Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu used Facebook for the first time on April 12, 2017. A video of them experimenting with the platform has been circulating online after the veteran actor's death on Wednesday.

In the video, Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu are seen enjoying their tea and snacks. Dilip, who was 94 years old then, can be seen dressed in white with a biscuit in his hand. Saira Banu sits next to him, also dressed in white, with a red scarf wrapped around her head. She can be heard saying, "Yusufji", "Yusuf baby", and "Yusuf jaan" asking him to look and speak for the camera. Saira jokingly asked him for a bite of his biscuit.

Sharing the video, Dilip had captioned it 'tea time is at noon'. The caption continued, "Irritating pain in lower back. A refreshing cup of tea is always welcome."


He had taken to Twitter to make the announcement: "Aap ki khwaishaat ki bina par meine Facebook account aaj se shuru kar diya (I've started a Facebook account from today as per your wish). Based on popular demand, I've setup a Facebook account today."

We are from God and to Him we return," family friend Faisal Farooqui posted from the actor's Twitter handle at 8.01 am.
