9th October 2018

Veteran Bollywood star Dilip Kumar was admitted to a hospital on Sunday as he has been suffering from recurrent pneumonia. On Sunday the 95-year old actor was admitted to the hospital following close observation and treatment regarding the same.

The confirmed news came from Dilip sahaab's official twitter handle that posted, "Want to inform you @TheDilipKumar has been admitted to hospital last night. He's being treated for recurrent pneumonia. Praying... Will keep you updated on twitter. --FF (@faisalMouthshut)." Earlier in September this year, the actor was admitted to hospital for the treatment of mild pneumonia. Faisal Farooqui also informed that the veteran actor was suffering from a chest infection.

He had tweeted: "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."

The actor was admitted to hospital in August 2017 too due to kidney issues. In December 2016, the Padma Vibhushan award winner was brought in for a swelling in his right leg and in April last year, he took ill with pneumonia, but made a quick recovery in two days.

Known as the 'Tragedy King of Bollywood', Kumar has acted in over 65 films in his career and is known for his iconic roles in movies like Devdas (1955), Naya Daur (1957), Mughal-e-Azam (1960), Ganga Jamuna (1961), Kranti (1981), and Karma (1986).
