We have been giving you the latest updates of Dilip Kumar's condition while he was at the Leelavati hospital after he suffered from a heart attack. We are now happy to inform you that the veteran actor has been discharged from the hospital today, September 26.
The legendary actor was admitted on September 15 when he complained of uneasiness. He was moved out of the Intensive Care Unit a few days back as his condition had improved. Now that the 90-year-old actor's health has shown stability, he has returned to his home after the 10-day-stay at the hospital.
Kumar's heart condition he faced recently is called as myocardial infarction and we are also aware that he had undergone a heart surgery 14 years ago. "He is better and hence it was decided to take him home," said a source close to the actor's family.
Dilip Kumar was once crowned as the Tragedy King of Bollywood for playing a doomed lover on screen in many movies. The actor was even honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 1991 and Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 for his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema.
While he was still at the hospital, the actor made sure he expressed his gratefulness by thanking everyone for their love and support on the micro-blogging site Twitter. We even saw Big B visiting the actor at the hospital. Now that he is home, we presume that some of Bollywood's biggies may visit him. We will surely update you on that. We wish him a healthy and a long life ahead.
