Defying the age-related labels, veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who is active on Twitter, made his Facebook debut today. The legendary actor posted a video with wife and yesteryear actress Saira Banu and, fans went completely gaga over it.
The 94-year-old has been suffering back pain, and has a biscuit in his hand during the 33-second long video.
The video features Saira trying to make Dilip Kumar talk and asks how the biscuit tastes.
He, meanwhile, chews on the biscuit with his eyes closed. The emotional video featuring Bollywood's 'king of tragedy', ends with Saira planting a kiss on her husband's cheek.
It is captioned: "Irritating pain in lower back. A refreshing cup of tea is always welcome."
Check out the video
On Twitter, a post from Dilip Kumar's handle read: "Based on your desire, I've set up a Facebook account today. (It is) the only Facebook account that I will be active on."
Aap ki khwaishaat ki bina par meine Facebook account aaj se shuru kar diya. Based on your desire, I've setup a Facebook account today.
