Actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted to Lilavati hospital in Mumbai. He is suffering from respiratory problems.

A doctor said he was hospitalised late on Friday night, is stable and is likely to be discharged soon. The actor was admitted at the hospital after he complained of breathing trouble.

“I got a call that he was unwell. He had fever and had vomited a few times. He was suffering from pneumonia as well. His white blood cells had shot up. We thought it would be better to admit him to hospital,” Dr Jalil Parkar of Lilavati Hospital told media.

Dr Parkar added that the 93-year-old actor is not in ICU. Now, a source has said that the actor would be discharged either on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. “He faced trouble in breathing due to which Sairaji (Saira Banu, his wife) rushed him to the hospital, where doctors immediately attended to him. He is fine now and is likely to get released from the hospital either tonight or tomorrow morning,” the source said.

His wife and other relatives are at the hospital. “Thankfully, he is physically fine and has no other health troubles. He should get better soon,” adds the source.
