Mumbai: Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was admitted to a hospital here on Sunday morning after experiencing ”episodes of breathlessness.”

Kumar, 98, was taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital, a non-COVID-19 facility, around 8.30 AM, his wife and veteran actor Saira Banu said.

”He was unwell today morning and had breathlessness. He is now here at Khar Hinduja non-COVID hospital for investigations,” Banu said.

According to an update posted on Kumar’s official Twitter handle, the actor has been admitted to the medical facility for routine tests and investigations.
