Veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who was admitted to a Mumbai hospital on Sunday after he complained of breathlessness, is expected to be discharged on Thursday.

Dilip Kumar’s family also took to Twitter to share an update about the actor’s health. A post on the actor’s handle read, “Thank you for your prayers. A successful pleural aspiration procedure was performed on Dilip Saab. I personally spoke to Dr. Jalil Parkar and Dr. Nitin Gokhale. They are optimistic that he will be discharged tomm (Thursday).

Dilip Kumar’s wife Saira Banu earlier urged fans not to believe in rumours surrounding the health of the 98-year-old actor.

Parkar, the chest specialist treating the legendary actor, on Tuesday told that Kumar was stable and likely to be discharged soon.

The Hindi cinema veteran, whose career spans over five decades with hits like Mughal-e-Azam, Devdas, Naya Daur, and Ram Aur Shyam, was admitted to the same hospital last month for a regular health check-up.
