Legendary actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a city hospital here to ‘address medical issues’ related to old age, his family friend Faisal Farooqui said on Wednesday (June 30).
The 98-year-old screen icon was taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital, a non-COVID-19 facility, after he reportedly complained of ‘breathlessness’, hospital sources said earlier in the day.
Kumar was earlier admitted to the same hospital on June 6 due to breathlessness issue.
The Hindi cinema veteran was then diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion -- a build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs and underwent a successful pleural aspiration procedure. He was discharged after five days.
Kumar's career spans over five decades with hits like ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, ‘Devdas’, ‘Naya Daur’, and ‘Ram Aur Shyam’. His last big screen appearance was in the 1998 film ‘Qila’.
