Mumbai: Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was admitted to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) at a hospital in Mumbai after he complained of breathlessness. A source close to the actor told Indian Express, “Dilip Kumar was brought to the hospital yesterday (Tuesday), he had the same complaints that he had last time. So his family probably thought it was best to bring him to the hospital, considering his age and also because he was previously admitted with the same complaint. Today the doctors will see him again and take a call on his line of treatment. He is in the ICU so that we can continuously monitor him. He is under observation and he is stable. There is nothing to worry.”Also Read - Saira Banu Breaks Down Remembering Dilip Kumar As She Accepts Bharat Ratna Dr Ambedkar Award For Him- Watch
