The last birthday we celebrated as a big event was his 89th birthday, which was in 2011 and of course, saab enjoyed that. Dilip Saab is not a big fan of celebrating birthdays.” Farooq added that he has not done that in a long time and birthdays are occasions where family members and some close friends get together.
