Dilip Kumar Discharged From Hospital

1212
Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar was recently released from hospital. Best known for his roles in Madhumati, Shakti, and Gunga Jumna, his upwards of 60 years spent in the industry has made the so-called “Tragedy King” one of the most admired actors of all time. While local media blew up, reporting the actor had been admitted to intensive care, Saira Banu, his wife and fellow veteran Bollywood film star, confirmed that his stint in the hospital was nothing to worry about. Nothing more than a high fever requiring treatment administered via IV, the 93-year-old actor was released from the hospital today after having spent less than 5 full days in treatment. Despite the lack of urgency and Kumar’s near 20 year hiatus from film, the actor’s reputation preceded him, resulting in an outpouring of support from fans and peers alike, with superstars like Aamir Khan visiting him in hospital.
