Dilip Kumar was rushed to hospital on Wednesday, August 2, due to dehydration and urinary tract infection. The thespian was admitted to Lilavati Hospital in suburban Bandra, Mumbai, and was likely to be under observation for the next two days. But the recent update is that he is in a critical state as his health has reportedly worsened due to kidney failure.
It was rumoured that the actor is at present on a ventilator. But contrary to rumours Shaheen Banu, who is daughter of Saira’s brother Sultan Ahmed, says that Dilip’s condition is now stable.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, Shaheen said, “He is in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for the monitoring, otherwise he is okay. He is sitting on a chair and having normal lunch. He is not on ventilator. He is absolutely conscious, he walks in the room and even in the corridor with a little bit of help. He doesn’t even look like a patient. He is 94 and his water levels have to be normal; we can’t monitor things at home, so we had to bring him to the hospital.”
Dilip Saab’s wife Saira Banu too said, “We have to pray he recovers soon. He should be well Inshallah! God willing. The doctors are treating him,”
Dilip, who was last seen on the big screen in Qila in 1998, was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
We are sure that his fans will be happy to know that the actor is on his way to recovery.
