Veteran actor Dilip Kumar is said to be “doing well” according to his close family. Rumours have been endless as to the 95-year-old deteriorating health. Faisal Farooqui who is a family friend of the actor denied media reports about the actor saying that he is unable to take food, medicine, or even water, through his mouth.
Farooqui told IANS: "I want to assure to all the millions of people who love Saab and admire his work, that Dilip Kumar is doing well. There is no need to panic... Such unfounded fake news creates panic and anxiety in the minds of millions of Dilip Kumar fans and well-wishers."
He urged fans to follow the official Dilip Kumar Twitter handle for health updates on the actor.
Earlier this month, Dilip Kumar was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital for treatment for recurrent pneumonia.
The nonagenarian is known for films like Kohinoor, Mughal-e-Azam, Shakti, Naya Daur and Ram Aur Shyam.
