Legendary actor Dilip Kumar who is known as tragedy king has once again in the news as the actor’s health gets deteriorated.
It is being said that may be alive in medical terms, but he’s all but gone.
According to close source, “He cannot recognize anyone; sometimes, not even his own wife Saira ji. He can no longer walk or speak. He even needs to be carried to the bathroom. For all practical purposes, he’s oblivious to the world around him.”
The source further added that it becomes a mission for his wife Saira to keep the 95 year old actor alive. “It is true, Yusuf sahab (Dilip Kumar) doesn’t talk or recognize anyone anymore. He has been this way a while, but Saira ji is spending all her savings on keeping him alive. She has nothing else to live for.” source added.
Kumar has acted in more than 65 films over six decades and is known for his iconic roles in movies such as Devdas (1955), Naya Daur (1957), Mughal-e-Azam (1960), Ganga Jamuna (1961), Kranti (1981), and Karma (1986).
Dilip Kumar was last seen in the film ‘Qila’ in 1998. He was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
