The Bollywood fraternity mourns the loss of Saeeda Khan, the younger sister of the late legendary actor Dilip Kumar. Saeeda Khan, who battled a prolonged illness, breathed her last on September 24, 2023. This sorrowful event comes just over a year after the passing of the iconic actor Dilip Kumar in July 2021.
A prayer meeting in loving memory of Saeeda Khan has been arranged at Mehboob Studios on September 26. Her obituary beautifully captures the essence of her spirit, stating, “She will continue to live in our hearts and our most cherished blessing and our brightest light. She has blessed us with a lifetime of memories of her immeasurable courage, grace, and her uniquely loving and incredible self.”
Saeeda Khan was the wife of the late Iqbal Khan, son of the renowned producer Mehboob Khan, known for cinematic classics like “Mother India” and “Andaz.” Iqbal Khan, who passed away in 2018, also held the position of trustee at the esteemed Mehboob Studios in Bandra.
Saeeda Khan’s legacy lives on through her daughter Ilham and son Saqib, who lovingly cared for her after Iqbal’s demise. Ilham is a distinguished writer, while Saqib has made his mark as a producer. The industry awaits any further comments from Saira Banu, who recently made her debut on Instagram.
