He is said to be stable and is under observation at the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU). This is the second time that the actor has been hospitalised this month.
A hospital source informed indianexpress.com that Dilip Kumar has been admitted to the ICU, and he is stable. The source said on Wednesday, “Dilip Kumar was brought to the hospital yesterday, he had the same complaints that he had last time. So his family probably thought it was best to bring him to the hospital, considering his age and also because he was previously admitted with the same complaint. Today the doctors will see him again and take a call on his line of treatment. He is in the ICU so that we can continuously monitor him. He is under observation and he is stable. There is nothing to worry.”
