Dilip Kumar was admitted to the same hospital last month as well for a routine checkup. However, he was then discharged after all his tests were done. The veteran actor lost his two younger brothers — Aslam Khan (88) and Ehsan Khan (90) last year due to coronavirus.
Dilip Kumar made his Bollywood debut with Jwar Bhata in 1944 and has appeared in several mega films including Saudagar (1991), Devdas (1955), Karma (1986), Naya Daur (1957), Gunga Jamuna (1961), Kohinoor (1960), Mughal-e-Azam (1960), and Ram Aur Shyam (1967) among others. He was last seen in Qila in 1998.
