Recently, there have been news doing the rounds that legendary actor Dilip Kumar’s health gets deteriorated. There were reports that claimed that the veteran actor’s health is failing and he is unable to recognise even his wife.

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.”

Well now, when Saira was asked about the same, she rubbished all the reports and said, “He is alright. He has come back from hospital and is recuperating at home as he had two bouts of pneumonia. He is with his doctor and nursing staff. He is getting better by god’s grace.”

When asked whether he is unable to recognise her and people around him, Banu said, “Who says that? I would not give that any cognizant at all. All is well, all is fine and nothing of this sort.”

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.
