Blast from the past: Dilip Kumar with his second wife Asma
A lot of you have been posting some really cool vintage stuff on Pinkvilla. This inspired me to make a post on the yester year tragedy king Dilip Kumar.
Dilip Kumar, like we all know, at 44 married a very young Saira Banu. She was barely 22 then. Dilip saab was previously linked to many a few co-stars(Madhubala, Vaijayanti Mala, Kamini Kaushal). This was in 1966.
But in 1980, Dilip Kumar married a Hyderabadi girl named Asma(Dilip being a muslim, this was completely legal).However,his second marriage brokeup as he realized that Asma was cheating him by disclosing all his secrets to the press along with her former husband.
Finally Dilip came back to Saira and they lived happily.
Another version of the story: When Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu looked like they had the perfect marriage, out came his marriage with Asma. When Saira threw a fit and asked for a quick divorce, Dilip Kumar retracted to Saira and divorced Asma. Asma remained the loser all the way, as she had left her husband and children to be with her beloved. She tried suicide and later went back to her former husband.
I am pretty sure you folks were not aware of this second wife of Dilip Kumar a.k.a Yusuf Khan. Here is a photo of Dilip with Asma
