Legendary actor Dilip Kumar, 95, was discharged from a hospital in Mumbai on October 11 where he was being treated for recurrent pneumonia, said his family friend.
Faisal Farooqui, who tweets on behalf of the thespian, informed his fans via social media that Mr Kumar has been discharged from the hospital and is now resting at home. “Doctors have advised complete rest, isolation for few days to prevent infection. Thank you all for your prayers,” Farooqui wrote.
