The superstar visited the ailing veteran in hospital recently
Amitabh Bachchan met ailing actor Dilip Kumar, who was hospitalised on September 15, at the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai. Actor Saira Banu – Dilip Saab’s wife – was also present with her brother. Big B wrote about Dilip Saab on his blog, saying:
“I had never met him so … in bed, in hospital, ailing and troubled and harassed by all the medical fuss around him .. Dilip Kumar !! the great thespian, the wonder of Indian cinema, the ultimate performer in my eyes, lying there in Lilavati Hospital, recovering from a recent mild heart attack !
He seemed cheerful .. at least when he saw me … Saira ji warned me that he had been quite irritable and non cooperative throughout the day, and so to excuse any kind of untoward behaviour that he may dole out to me … but he was gracious and kind .. repeatedly he kept saying ‘wah’ ‘wah’ and then slipping into repetitions of ‘Allah’ ..
But he smiled when he saw me and when I held his hand he gripped it like I would never be able to extricate myself from it … strong and full of strength ..
There is talk to bring him back home soon … that bodes well for him and his family .. may he recover fully as soon as possible … our prayers and ‘duas’ for him ..”
Big B reportedly visited Dilip Saab at 7pm last evening and spent 30 minutes with him. Dilip Saab has been shifted to the general ward and may get discharged by Wednesday.
