Dilip Kumar hospitalised for ‘illness which are frequently expected in a 98 year old’, says family.


Veteran actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted to Mumbai’s Hinduja hospital for ‘medical issues related to illness which are frequently expected in a 98 year old’, his family informed on Twitter. He was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) on Tuesday and is said to be stable.

Faisal Faaroqui, the veteran actor’s family friend, took to Dilip Kumar‘s Twitter handle and thanked people for their prayers. This is the second time in June that the actor had to be admitted to the hospital.

Dilip Kumar was rushed to the hospital, which is a specialised non-Covid medical facility, after he complained of breathlessness again. Doctors said he is stable and under observation. He was admitted earlier in June for the same complaint and pleural effusion procedure was performed on him.
