She further thanked fans and well-wishers for their prayers. Saira Banu informed that Dilip Sahab is doing well. "Thanks to everyone, he has come out of it and is doing well now. God willing with all your prayers and good wishes, he’ll continue to do well at home as well." 

Saira Banu said that the ongoing pandemic made the situation difficult for the family. "Bahut hi mushkil tha. We’ve been very fortunate that people love him so much, and rallied around him as soon as they got to know about his health — from the doctors to his personal staff. They spent day and night taking care of him. I’m so grateful to the young boys. He has a staff of about five people who’re still rallying around him,” she added. 

She concluded by saying, "I want to thank every single person. Someone did hawan in America, somebody went to a church all night to pray. Koi masjid gaya. How can I be grateful enough for all this."
