(Web Desk) – Health of Legendary actor Dilip Kumar has been constantly deteriorating in recent past as he was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai following the worsening of his kidney problems.
The 94-year-old actor has been recommended dialysis by the doctors considering the low haemoglobin in blood and rise in creatinine as well as potassium level. Indian media reported that Dilip Kumar will require a dialysis, but not in capacity of a ventilator.
He was rushed to the hospital a few days ago as soon as his condition became serious due to urinary tract infection and dehydration. He was accompanied by his wife Saira Banu. She admitted that his ailment has slowed due to his age as doctors said his kidney is not functioning at its best.
Several Bollywood stars have prayed for Dilip’s recovery. One of these was Lata Mangeshkar who wished he gets well soon. “Mujhe news dekhkar pata chala ki Dilip Kumar ji ki tabiyat acchi nahi hai. Unki sehat mein jald sudhaar ho yehi meri Ishwar se prarthana,” she said on Twitter.
Dilip Kumar is still remembered for his sublime performances in Mughal-e-Azam, Karma and Devdas. He last acted on the big screen in 1998 movie Qila.
