Dilip Kumar has been discharged from Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital after being admitted there on Wednesday afternoon (August 2). The veteran actor complained of dehydration and his rising creatinine levels had raised a major health scare. He was also in the ICU which had the nation in shock and praying for his health.

Much to the relief of his family, friends and fans, the living legend’s condition started improving Monday onwards. Throughout his treatment at the hospital, his family and wife Saira Banu kept fans posted about his health condition through regular Twitter posts. Today, as they headed home post Dilip sahab’s discharge, Saira Banu was seen kissing her Yusuf saab (as she endearingly calls him) on his cheek.

She also posted an updated about the discharge just a couple of hours ago on Twitter. The message from Saira Banu read, “By the grace of Allah, Dilip Sahab is under the care of Dr. Nitin Gokhale, Dr. Arun Shah of Lilavati Hospital and Sahab’s personal family physicians Dr. R.C. Sharma and Dr. S. Gokhale, along with the able input of Dr. S. D. Bapat…this excellent team has given the green signal to take Sahab home today.”

It is the Almighty God’s will and benevolence that I wish to acknowledge in all humility and gratitude,” she signed off.
