Veteran actor Dilip Kumar breathed his last in a hospital on July 7, 2021, in Mumbai's Khar Hinduja Hospital. Since then, a video is getting viral on social media in which it can be seen that actor Dilip Kumar is on a hospital bed and his wife Saira Banu can be seen feeding him food.
A Facebook page name BTFC shared the video of Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu with the caption"Dilip Kumar Last Video Inside Hospital Before He Left Us Saira Bano Ji Feeding Him Food…"
