This year is extra special, thanks to the date - 11/12/13.

"It's all the more a special day as it is 11/12/13 today. I exactly wished him at 8 hours 9-minutes and 10 seconds ...so it's 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13."

Talking about Dilip Kumar's health, Saira said he has become little weak but he is healthy.

"He was in the hospital some time back as you all know so he is a little weak, but by god's grace he is healthy," she said.

When asked what she gifted Dilip Kumar on his birthday, she said: "Dilip sahab is not fond of many things. He only believes in humanity, so I gifted him lots of love and each year the love is only getting bigger and bigger."
