Mumbai: Veteran actor Dilip Kumar admitted to hospital
Veteran actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted to Lilavati hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The actor, who has been suffering from a kidney ailment, had to be taken to the hospital urgently."He was admitted due to dehydration and urine (tract) infection. He is not in the ICU... He is in a normal room. He is fine now, there is nothing to worry," Kumar's nephew Rehan said.
The renowned actor, whose real name is Mohammad Yusuf Khan, has acted in several superhit films during his six- decade long career such as 'Madhumati', 'Devdas', 'Mughal-e- Azam', 'Ganga Jamuna', 'Ram Aur Shyam' and 'Karma'.
He was last seen on-screen in the 1998 film 'Qila'. The veteran actor was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, India's highest award in cinema, in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan, the country's second-highest civilian award, in 2015.
The 94-year-old actor, who has had various visits to the hospital in the last few years, was last admitted in Lilavati in December after he complained of fever and swelling in his right leg.
