Anxious enquiries from all quarters about thespian Dilip Kumar’s health have finally been answered by his wife, Saira Banu. She sent out a text message to us saying, “He has improved.”

However, close friends of the veteran actor and Saira claim that they’re not allowed to visit, or even enquire about his health.

 

Says an entertainer, who has known the couple for decades, “I’ve known them forever, and was a constant visitor to their Pali Hill bungalow. But in recent years, all my attempts to meet Yusuf saab, or even know about his health have been stonewalled by his wife.”

The 94-year-old actor was rushed to Lilavati hospital on Wednesday due to dehydradation and a urinary tract infection. He was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), where he is expected to spend a few more days under observation.
