Legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted in Lilavati Hospital yesterday because of chest infection. The news came straight away from Dilip Kumar's official twitter handle that read, ''Saab has been admitted to Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital as he was bit uneasy due to a chest infection. He's recuperating. Requesting your duas and prayers.''
A sigh of relief came when the hospital officials informed that there is nothing to worry about. While Dilip Kumar's wife Saira Banu told, "We are here at Lilavati and we come here for a routine check-up regularly. He will be here for a few days, as long as the doctors want to do tests. All kinds of tests will be conducted. There is a team of doctors here, chest physician, neurologist."
She further adds, "The tests are being conducted under Dr Nitin Gokhale. We need your wishes so we can go home soon." Whereas the vice president of Lilavati Hospital Ajaykumar Pandey said, ''He has just come for a routine check-up and there is nothing to worry about. He is keeping well. It is difficult to say how long he will stay in the hospital."
It was last year in August, the actor was rushed to the hospital due to dehydration. Dilip Kumar has been honoured with Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
