Shah Rukh Khan visits his idol Dilip kumar. See pictures of their heartwarming meeting

Shahrukh Khan has always professed his love and admiration for screen legend Dilip Kumar. The actor has time and again reached out to the ageing icon who's not been keeping in good health lately.

The admiration happens to be mutual as both Dilip kumar and his wife Saira Bano have often called Shahrukh their "muh-bola-beta" (sworn son) and often complain when they don't get to see him that often.

SRK, being his grounded self, doesn't need a reason or an occasion to check out on Kumar every now and then and recently made a visit to the 95 year old actor's residence.

Dilip Kumar's official twitter handle posted the pictures of SRK's recent visit, in which King Khan can been seen in casual wear, holding Kumar's hand with utter care and love.

Shahrukh has been a frequent visitor and well-wisher of the celebrated star, and made a similar visit to his idol's place when he was apparently not keeping well. The pictures were shared on Kumar's Twitter, in which he was seen hugging and kissing Dilip sahab on forehead:

In a recent interview given to Mumbai Mirror, Saira Bano (who's usually the one to click all these adorable pictures between SRK and Dilip) recalled her first meet with Shahrukh some decades ago. "We were all there at the muhurat of Shahrukh;s movie Dil Aashna hai," she recalled. "If we had a son he would have looked like Shahrukh. Dilip sahab and Shahrukh are quite alike & have similar hair, that's why I like running my fingers through Shahrukh's hair whenever we meet."

Heartwarming to see SRK reaching out his ageing idol, when he has the chance. A great reminder of how we should take out the time to reach out our old pals, every chance we get.
