Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was admitted to a hospital here on Sunday morning after experiencing breathlessness, his wife and veteran actor Saira Banu said.

Kumar, 98, was taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital around 8.30 AM.

“He was unwell today morning and had breathlessness. He is now here at Khar Hinduja non-Covid hospital for investigations,” Banu told PTI.

He is under the care of a team of senior doctors, Cardiologist Dr Nitin Gokhale and Pulmonologist Dr Jalil Parkar, at the hospital. They are closely monitoring his condition, according to a report by NDTV.

The actor was admitted to the same hospital last month for a regular health check-up and was later released after two days.

Last year, his brothers Ehsan Khan, 90, and Aslam Khan, 88, passed away at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital after testing positive for Covid-19. 

Kumar, who made his debut with “Jwar Bhata” in 1944, has appeared in several iconic films in his career spanning over five decades, including “Kohinoor“, “Mughal-e-Azam“, “Devdas“, “Naya Daur“, “Ram Aur Shyam“, among others.

He was last seen on the big screen in “Qila” in 1998.
