Ailing thespian Dilip Kumar says his health has been better during the holy month of Ramadan. A post from the official Twitter handle of the 94-year-old actor read on Friday, "Still get so many invitations to accept awards and honours. My health makes it difficult to travel and be there personally, but thank you. God's infinite mercy has been upon Saira (wife Saira Banu) and I. Your love and adulation for us can never be thanked enough. Allah's mercy has been upon us, my health has been much better this Ramazan. Could not fast due to regular medication and irregular sleep." He even shared a picture from his house, with a caption that read as, "Saira asked me to try this new shirt and pant. Comfortable."
Dilip Kumar was born as Muhammad Yusuf Khan in Peshawar. Just last week, there was news that his century-old ancestral house in Peshawar has collapsed. It was declared a national heritage in 2014 by the archaeology department in Pakistan.

On Thursday night, once again, Dilip Kumar became a victim of a death hoax and Saira Banu was surprised when she received several phone calls and messages asking about her husband's health. Some even expressed condolences. However, the veteran actress was quick to clarify, as she told Bombay Times, "Allah ke fazal se Dilip sahab theek hain. He is fine and at home. I request people to not spread such bad rumours. His blood pressure was on the higher side and perhaps, frequent visits by the doctor to our home may have given rise to these stories. Touch wood, he is doing well now."
