Veteran Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar was on Wednesday evening discharged from Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai.
Dilip Kumar, who was admitted to the hospital last week, showed considerable improvement after struggling with dehydration, kidney dysfunction and urinary tract infection.
Talking about Dilip Kumar, Ajay Kumar Pande, the VP of Lilavati Hospital, said, “Yes, Dilip Kumar sahab is ready to go home. He will be discharged today. He is eating well and feeling better. There is nothing to worry about as his creatinine levels have come down to normal. He has been suggested some rest at home, and soon he will start following his normal routine.”
Dilip Kumar’s wife Saira Banu was by the actor’s side throughout his stay at the hospital. Talking to reporters outside the hospital, Saira said, “He is very good. It was like a nightmare. This has been a miracle. I thank God for all the good things. All the fans, doctors, everybody wished for his good health and God heard. I can’t tell you how grateful I am. This was a terrible thing which happened all of a sudden. He is perfectly fine now. He is eating and also talking slowly. God willing he will be alright soon.
