'LOVE' is said to be the most beautiful feeling in the world. And there lies a saying, "everything is fair in love and war" that suits the Bollywood industry well. Several B-Town celebrity couples made love happen, and even marriages, despite huge age differences. One such classic example is that of the industry's yesteryear superstar Dilip Kumar and his much younger gorgeous wife Saira Banu, whose eternal love saga can be remembered for their lifelong devotion towards each other.

Dilip Kumar married the beauty queen Saira Banu in the year 1966. It is said that Banu is 22 years younger to her superstar husband, yet nothing or nobody could stop them from getting married and living a life of togetherness, that have been getting better with age and time.

Like millions of girls across the country, Saira had nursed a crush on Dilip Kumar since she was 12 years old. "I fell in love with Dilip saheb when I was 12 years old. Beyond my own romance (with him), I can't see anything. In real life, he is very loving, very polished and a sophisticated man," Saira had once said in an interview. The marriage was a dream come true for Saira, and all thanks goes to her mother Naseem Banu, who went up to Dilip Kumar and tactfully offered him her daughter's hand. Kumar agreed to Naseem's proposal, and the marriage soon happened.

Following their wedding, people started speculating that the marriage would finally end up to divorce, keeping Dilip and Saira's huge age difference in mind. But, the couple proved all wrong and went on to be considered as one of the evergreen senior couples in the tinselville.
