Mumbai: Veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who was undergoing treatment at Lilavati Hospital after a heart attack, will be discharged Thursday, said Murshid Khan.

Murshid Khan is manager of Dilip Kumar`s wife and actress Saira Banu.

"Dilip Kumar is absolutely fine and he will be discharged tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon," Murshid Khan said.

The 90-year-old Thespian was hospitalized Sep 15 after he complained of uneasiness. Doctors later diagnosed a heart attack.

A leading light of the Mumbai film fraternity, Dilip Kumar entertained movie buffs for six decades both as a lead hero and as character artist in films like ‘Jwar Bhata’ ‘Mela’, ‘Naya Daur’, ‘Tarana’, ‘Ganga Jamuna’, ‘Leader’, ‘Mughal-E-Azam’, ‘Shakti’, ‘Karma’ and ‘Saudagar’.

After the 1998 film ‘Qila’, he decided to bow out of films.
