Dilip Kumar hospitalised again

Mumbai, June 30 (TIWN) Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar has been hospitalised once again, for the second time this month.

The actor, 98, had reportedly complained of breathlessness. On June 6, Dilip Kumar was hospitalised after a similar complaint.

"He was admitted yesterday during the day due to breathlessness. Given his age and recent hospitalisation, the family decided to take him to the hospital as a precautionary measure. He is fine. He is in the ICU so that the doctors can monitor him," a hospital source told PTI.

Dilip was diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion -- a build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs--two weeks ago and underwent a successful pleural aspiration procedure. He was discharged after five days.

His family friend Faisal Farooqui had shared on the actor's official Twitter handle, "With your love and affection, and your prayers, Dilip Saab is going home from the hospital. God's infinite mercy and kindness through Drs. Gokhale, Parkar, Dr Arun Shah and the entire team at Hinduja Khar.--Faisal Farooqui."
