Thespian Dilip Kumar was admitted to a suburban hospital in Mumbai on Saturday due to a severe case of cough and cold attack. According to family members, he’s suffering from pneumonia.
Sources close to the actor verified that he is stable now. He’s getting better and responding to treatments well.
Udaya Tara Nayar who co-wrote the legend’s recent autobiography The Substance and the Shadow, was quoted as telling, “He is fine right now and he is on antibiotics. He was diagnosed with pneumonia but he has been responding to the treatment very well. He is in the normal ward and not in the ICU. He also had his breakfast and is recovering.”
Aamir Khan, who’s both a fan and a family friend of the Kumars, sent out a message, “”I too have seen on TV that Yusuf sahab (Dilip Kumar) is not well and he is in the hospital. We pray that he may get well soon. I’m the biggest fan of Yusuf sahab, I have learnt a lot watching his films.”
