Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai on Sunday morning after experiencing breathlessness, his wife and veteran actor Saira Banu said.

Kumar (98) was taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital around 8.30AM.

"He was unwell today morning and had breathlessness. He is now here at Khar Hinduja non-COVID Hospital for investigations," Banu told PTI.

The actor was admitted to the same hospital last month for a regular health check-up.

Kumar, who made his debut with Jwar Bhata in 1944, has appeared in several iconic films in his career spanning over five decades, including Kohinoor, Mughal-e-Azam, Devdas, Naya Daur and Ram Aur Shyam.

He was last seen on the big screen in Qila in 1998.
