Rajesh Khanna to stay in hospital till Thursday

Yesteryears superstar Rajesh Khanna is much better but would have to stay in the hospital for “a couple of days”, said his estranged wife, actor Dimple Kapadia, who is taking care of him. “He is much better today (Tuesday). He is not getting discharged today. He will be back home in a couple of days,” said Dimple. The 69-year-old was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai on Saturday. It was expected he would be allowed to go home Tuesday as Dimple had said Sunday that he “shall be discharged in a day or two”. But his recovery will perhaps take more time. Khanna, known as India’s first superstar, has been battling health issues for quite some time. His manager, Ashwin said on June 20 that the actor had stopped taking food for “three or four days”. This left fans worried, but the actor stepped out of his Bandra bungalow, Aashirvad, to wave at fans next day. Dimple and son-in-law Akshay Kumar were at his side and said that he was “fine”.
