‘Difficulty breathing’, Dilip Kumar admitted to Mumbai hospital
Legendary actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted to Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai on a complaint of difficulty in breathing.
On Sunday morning, his manager tweeted from Dilip Kumar’s official Twitter account that ‘Dilip Sahib has been admitted to Hinduja Hospital for routine tests and examinations. He is having difficulty breathing. A team of medical staff led by Dr. Nitin Gokhali is treating him. Please remember them in your prayers and be safe.
According to the website of Indian TV channel NDTV, the Indian actor is currently under the care of a team of senior doctors comprising cardiologist Dr Nitin Gokhali and pulmonologist Dr Jalil Parkar, who are closely monitoring his condition.
The 98-year-old actor was also admitted to hospital for a routine check-up last month and was sent home two days later.
Prior to the implementation of the nationwide lockdown in March last year, Dilip Kumar had said that he and his wife, Saira Bano, were in “complete isolation and quarantine” taking precautionary measures against the corona virus.
