Legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar was admitted to Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai Sunday morning.

According to media reports, he’s under the supervision of senior doctors, Cardiologist Dr Nitin Gokhale and Pulmonologist Dr Jalil Parkar who are closely monitoring his condition at the moment, reports Filmfare.

The details of his admission are still awaited, though some media reports state that he had complained of breathlessness. Last month, too, the actor had been admitted to the hospital for his regular health checkup and had been discharged two days later. The actor and his wife, actor Saira Banu, had said that they were under complete isolation and quarantine before the national lockdown fell into place last year in March.

Banu had also shared an audio message updating their fans and followers about their health. "Sab kuch theek hai, allah ka shukr hai, aap sab ki dua hai (We have your love. We have your affection and we are so grateful to you and so grateful to God. God is kind, thank you),” she had said. Kumar made his debut in Jwar Bhata in 1944 and both he and Saira Banu are two of the most celebrated actors in Indian cinema. The actor had lost two of his brothers, Aslam Khan (88) and Ehsan Khan (90) to COVID-19 last year.
