On several occasions, Shah Rukh has visited Dilip Kumar at his home and pictures from their meetings were often shared on social media.
In 2018, Dilip Kumar’s friend Faisal Farooqui had tweeted pictures of Shah Rukh visiting the legendary actor.
Saira Banu, speaking with Mumbai Mirror, had once said that if she and Dilip Kumar had a son, he might have looked like Shah Rukh. Saira Banu had said, “Dilip saab gave the ceremonial clap (Dil Aashna Hai). I have always said that if we had a son, he might have looked like Shah Rukh. Both he and saab are a lot alike and have similar hair, which is why I like to run my fingers through Shah Rukh Khan when we meet. This time (during one of their earlier meetings) he asked me, ‘Aaj aap mere baalon ko haath nahin laga rahi hain?’ I was happy to.”
