They both were tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus and were admitted to the Lilavati Hospital of Mumbai. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Saira had told, “We are still unable to come to terms with the passing of our brothers, Ahsan bhai and Aslam bhai. Moreover, Sahib never plans anything for his birthday.

Dilip Kumar was last seen in the 1998 film Qila.
