“Allah ka shukr hai Dilip saab ghar wapas aa gaye. I’m so happy today,” expresses Saira Banu, as her husband, legendary actor Dilip Kumar got discharged from a Mumbai hospital, after a successful procedure on his lungs.
The 98-year-old cinematic icon was hospitalised after he complained of breathlessness on June 6, following which he was diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion.
“Jitna hum shukriya aada karein unn sabka jinhone Dilip saab ki tandursati ke liye duayein kari,woh kun hai. He has got back home. Now, we’ll continue to treat him with antibiotics because he had water logging in his lungs,” Banu tells us, adding that it has been a “very crucial and critical” time for them.
“Thanks to everyone, he has come out of it and is doing well now. God willing with all your prayers and good wishes, he’ll continue to do well at home as well,” she adds.
The ongoing pandemic made handling the health scare more challenging for the family, admits Banu.
