Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who had mistakenly declared that superstar Dilip Kumar is dead, has reportedly appologised to the latter through Twitter. Dilip Kumar, who was admitted at the Lilavati Hospital on Sunday (September 15, 2013), is now reportedly recovering.
Dilip Kumar was reportedly admitted to the hospital, after a heart attack. Kashyap had mistakenly tweeted, "Two deaths today...Ajay Jhingran and now Dilip Saab. Something else died too..Shittiest day ever...". Reacting to this fake news, a close source to Kumar told the media that the actor is coping up well and will be discharged soon from the hospital, so people should not spread the rumours of his death. Following this, Anurag Kashyap appologised to the superstar on Twitter, "Apologies for the Dilip Saab tweet.. I panicked because of three back to back messages, he is fine and the news is not true".
Dilip Kumar, one of the biggest superstars of the hindi film industry, has always been dubbed as the Bollywood's 'Tragedy King'. He acted in some of the biggest movies of his era Jogan (1950), Deedar (1951), Daag (1952), Devdas (1955), Yahudi (1958) and Madhumati (1958).
