Mumbai: Veteran actor Dilip Kumar has been rushed to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai after he felt uneasy due to a chest infection. The thespian is recuperating, tweeted Faisal Farooqui, who handles the legendary actor’s Twitter account.

He wrote: “Saab has been admitted to Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital as he was a bit uneasy due to a chest infection. He’s recuperating. Requesting your duas and prayers. ”

Last year, Dilip Kumar had been rushed to the hospital for a check-up and was admitted for a week. Later he was visited by Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra at home who checked on his well-being.

In December last year, Dilip Kumar celebrated his 95th birthday with wife Saira Banu and friends at home while his 94th birthday celebrations were at Lilavati Hospital – he was being treated for fever and a swollen leg.

Saira Banu often operates from Dilip Kumar’s Twitter and updates fans and followers about the actor’s health. In July this year, Saira Banu tweeted about attending a function “without” Dilip Kumar in a heart-warming tweet. She also shared a health update of sorts.

Dilip Kumar married Saira Banu in 1966 and they have featured together in films such as Sagina Mahato, Chhoti Bahu, and Duniya. Dilip Kumar, who was born as Mohammad Yusuf Khan, is best known for his starring roles in films like Madhumati, Devdas, Mughal-e-Azam, Ganga Jamuna, Ram Aur Shyam, and Naya Daur in a career spanning over six decades.

The thespian was last seen on the big screens in 1998 release Qila. The actor was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery!
