Dilip Kumar hospitalised, next couple of days crucial

Veteran actor Dilip Kumar has been hospitalised in Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre at Bandra here after he complained of respiratory problems arising out of pneumonia.

The 93-year-old actor was rushed to the hospital around 2 am.
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 reporters.

Dr Parkar said that the next 72 hours are going to be crucial and if need be, he would be shifted to the ICU.

Dilip Kumar's wife Saira Banu, in a brief statement on Twitter said: “Dilip Sahab was admitted to Lilavati Hospital for treatment of high fever and chest infection on April 15 night. He was advised intravenous administration of antibiotics for speedy recovery. Oral drugs would not act as fast as the IV injections, the doctors advised. Hence it became necessary to shift him to a hospital. He is recovering well and is stable by the grace of God and the care of the doctors treating him. He is in a room and in the hospital and not in the ICU as spread by rumours.”
