Sayyeshaa poured her heart out and posted a rare photo remembering her grand uncle and legendary Dilip Kumar, today. In her post she wrote: “For me he will always remain my warm-hearted Phuponana, with whom I sang and danced, learnt so much from and loved to bits! It’s an end of an era!” Sayyeshaa’s post is a throwback photo of a younger version of herself dancing with the legendary actor.
Dilip Kumar’s death has marked an end of an era. Saira Banu’s grandniece, actress Sayyeshaa Saigal, in a nostalgic heart-warming post about her grand uncle posted a bunch of childhood memories.
I am Blessed says Sayyesha Saigal
Mourning the legend Dilip Kumar, Sayyeshaa took a trip down memory lane and zeroed in on one of her favourite throwback photos with Dilip Kumar. In her tribute post to Dilip Kumar, Sayyeshaa Saigal wrote: “I’m blessed to have spent so much of my childhood with the legend who the world knows as Dilip Kumar.”
In 2019, Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar had attended their grandniece’s wedding in Hyderabad – Sayyeshaa Saigal got married to actor Arya in March that year. Photos of Saira Banu dancing with her niece Shaheen Banu (mother of Sayyeshaa) during the wedding festivities went crazy viral. Dilip Kumar was also spotted in Sayyeshaa’s wedding photos, in which he was seen blessing the couple.
Sayyeshaa Saigal is the daughter of actor producer Sumeet Saigal and actress Shaheen Banu (Maha-Sangram and Ayee Milan Ki Raat), niece of Saira Banu. Sumeet and Shaheen separated in 2003.
Sayyeshaa debuted on the big screen with 2015’s Telugu film Akhil. She made her Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn’s 2016 movie Shivaay. Sayyeshaa Saigal was last seen in Kannada movie Yuvarathnaa.
