She was taken care of by the late Dilip Kumar's wife Saira Bau and Fareida's nephews Imran and Saqib.
Dilip Kumar passed away in July 2021. His last rites took place at Juhu Qabrastan at Santacruz Mumbai. He was admitted to hospital due to breathlessness. On Dilip Kumar's first death anniversary, Saira Banu penned a long note for the love of her life. She shared the note with ETimes that read, "I turn my face away and bury my face in the pillow and try to go back to sleep... as if by doing so I will open my eyes again and see him sleeping by my side, his pink cheeks glowing in the morning rays of the sun streaming into the room."
"Having said that, I must admit that I consider myself very fortunate that I had my Yousuf with me for 56 years and more. The whole world now knows I fell in love with him at the age of 12 and I grew up with the dream tucked away in my mind that he alone is the perfect man for me," the note further read.
