The couple are not celebrating Dilip’s birthday this year, as he recently lost his two younger brothers. Saira told Mid Day: “We have had a catastrophe this year. Dilip sahab lost her two brothers. He doesn’t keep up well, neither do I. It is a difficult time for us, so it is not a big celebration. We will simply thank the Lord for the gift of life and health. “
