“Saira Banu became dejected after she came to know about the collapse of the ancestral house of Dilip Kumar,” Waheedullah said. However, the Director of Archaeology and Museums, Abdul Samad calls this situation as a blessing in disguise as the collapse has given architects to reconstruct the house. The structure of the house was in shambles and very difficult to conserve. However, now that the house has caved in, the engineers are making plans of reconstructing the iconic structure.

“The only way to conserve this house was to reconstruct it as the structure was irreparable,” Samad said and also informed that the department of archaeology had to demolish the structure for its reconstruction. The neglect in conserving the house was blamed on the litigation that came in the way of the archaeological department’s efforts due to the ownership issues. The new law, however, allows the archaeology department to carry on conservation or reconstruction work at any ancient site without ownership. The replica of Dilip Kumar’s house is expected to be constructed soon.
