The Padosan actor wrote, “As I said yesterday, Sahib sprung the surprise of my life, asking me to do a ‘Guest Appearance’ as his wife in “DUNIYA”. You could have knocked me down with a feather when he said this to me. I ventured to tell him that it is years that I haven’t faced the camera and have forgotten about my work, to which in response he laughed and told me a swimmer never forgets to swim when he is once again in the water.”

Banu ji further added, “This wonderful opportunity to play Sahib’s wife on ‘CAMERA’ beckoned and attracted me to gradually say “YES” and also in my own way I wanted to thank Yash Joharji and his wonderful down-to-earth wife Hiroo Johar who has always been equally indispensable, warm and friendly in fact a perfect complement of largesse of heart as her Yashji. I have seen @karanjohar growing up as an energetic youngster romping around us, especially at Ootacamund where shooting was on. He is a wonderful helpful youngster for us always.

She further was seen praising Dilip Kumar ji for his incredible work in the movie and how she struggled to do it. Saira Ji then concluded her note saying, “I had been a Glamorous Musical Star and had no idea how to go about this scene, so it was quite a predicament and I of course resorted to taking the able help and tuition from the ‘Master Of Tragedy’ Dilip Sahib.”

Dilip Kumar passed away on July 21, 2021.
