Meanwhile, Dilip Kumar’s family friend Faisal Farooqui said that Dilip Kumar is not a big fan of birthdays. He has decided to spend the day with his family members and close friends. During a recent media interaction, Farooqui said, “He (Dilip Kumar) has not done that in a long time. For him, birthdays are occasions where the family gets together with close friends. So, saab‘s brothers and sisters and Saira Banu ji‘s extended family will come and then my family and some close friends gather together.” In September and October Dalip Kumar was admitted to a hospital due to recurring pneumonia. But he is now home and recovering.
“He has not fully recovered but he is making great progress. Saab is resting at home, having his meals, interacting, but obviously one of the things that the doctor has advised us to be cautious about is the infections. So, we curb the access of a lot of people to meet him.”
Dilip Kumar is best known for his performances in films such as Jugnu, Andaz, Mughal-e-Azam,Naya Daur and Ram Aur Shyam among others. He was last seen in the 1998 film in Qila.
