Banu’s family friend, Faisal Farooqui, told Indian Express, “Saira ji is admitted to the hospital and the doctors have advised a few tests. Saira Ji’s doctor Nitin Gokhale suspects that there could be an issue with her left ventricular, for which she will need to go through an angiography, but that’s not urgent. But we are going with what the doctor says. All said and done, Saira ji is stable and should be out of the hospital soon.”

Earlier Farooqui had released a statement on the subject and said, “She was admitted to Hinduja Hospital at Khar three days ago due to chest congestion. She is now stable, and under a lot of observation and abundance of precautions, considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.”

Dharmendra also recently opened up about how Saira Banu’s ill health and revealed it has left him concerned. “I couldn’t reach her and she had called back. She told me that she has not been keeping well…I did not ask too many questions but you can understand how she must be feeling after Dilip Kumar passed away. Sab kuch khaali khaali lag raha hoga (She must be feeling the void),” Dharmendra told Entertainment Times.

Dharmendra was among the first few people from the industry to meet Saira Banu after Dilip Kumar’s demise earlier this year. He took to social media to talk about the same and wrote, “Saira ne jab kaha. ‘Dharam , dekho Sahab ne palak jhapki hai’ Dosto , jaan nikal gai meri. Maalik mere pyaare bhai ko jannat naseeb kare. (When Saira said, ‘Dharam, see, Sahab is blinking’, friends, my heart broke into a million pieces. May God bless my friend with heaven).”
