Mumbai: Veteran actor Dilip Kumar is going to be discharged from the hospital on Sunday, his wife Saira Banu revealed in a statement to a leading daily. The 98-year-old actor was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai for regular health checkups and some other health issues. His wife and former actor mentioned that there’s nothing to worry about as Kumar is recovering well.
In a previous interview last year, Saira had asked everyone to pray for the wellbeing of her husband as Kumar was not keeping well at that time. She had told ETimes, “He’s not too well. He’s weak. At times, he walks into the hall and back to his room. His immunity is low. Pray for his welfare. We are grateful to God for each day.”
Popularly known as Bollywood’s Tragedy King, Dilip Kumar is known for his legendary performances in films like Mughal-e-Azam (1960), Naya Daur (1957), Ram Aur Shyam, Devdas (1955), and Ganga Jumna (1961) among others. He was last seen on-screen in the 1998 film Qila.
We wish him a speedy recovery!
