Veteran Bollywood Legend Dilip Kumar aka Yusuf Khan had left the world yesterday. Right from then, fans are floating his throwback videos on social media. In one such video, Superstar Shahrukh Khan is rolling out a mat for Dilip Sahab and his wife Saira Banu.

Shahrukh Khan has always been close to the legendary couple. They both used to call Shahrukh their ‘Moohbola Son’. Now, a video of the three has been surfaced on the internet. In the viral video, Shahrukh Khan can be seen in white Kurta Pyjama along with a white long coat surrounded with a long shawl around his neck and he is rolling out the red carpet with his hand on the stage for the legendary couple. Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu can be seen together walking on the carpet by holding each other’s hands. What a moment!

The video belongs to the 2001 Zee Cine Awards when Shahrukh Khan was hosting a special segment honouring the legacy of Mughal-e-Azam actors. During the event, the Baazigar star told Dilip Sahab that he is recreating Devdas with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Would he please slap him for even trying to impersonate Dilip Kumar? Dilip laughs….and tapped smoothly on the cheeks of SRK and wishes him all the best for the film.  Meanwhile, Saira took the mic and said that if anyone can do ‘Devdas’ other than Dilip Saahab then it’s only ‘Shahrukh Khan’.

FYI, Dilip Kumar has played the character of ‘Devdas’ in 1965 released film of the same name which was based on the Bengali novel of Sharatchand Chattopadhyay. Later on, Shahrukh also played the same character in his version of Devdas in 2002.
