Islamabad, December 13:

Legendary Indian actor Dilip Kumar's ancestral home in Peshawar would be acquired and preserved by the provincial government as national heritage, Minister for Culture, Mian Iftikhar Hussain announced on the actor's 90th birthday.

The birthday celebrations, organized by the city's Cultural Heritage Council (CHC), was attended by prominent personalities, including film stars, journalists, lawyers, and culture lovers, reports The News.

Dilip Kumar, who was born as Mohammad Yusuf Khan, decided not to celebrate his birthday this year to mourn the death of various prominent personalities, including Yash Chopra, Rajesh Khanna, Dara Singh and many others.

His fans, however, gathered here in his hometown to mark the day.

The veteran actor and his wife Saira Bano thanked the CHC and other participants for celebrating his birthday.

The CHC said the function was aimed at cementing ties between the two neighbouring countries and promoting people-to-people contact.
