Amitabh Bachchan: Dilip Kumar seemed cheerful when he saw me

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says veteran actor Dilip Kumar seemed cheerful when he went to meet him in the hospital.

The 90-year-old was admitted to Lilavati Hospital on September 15 after suffering a mild heart attack. His health has improved and he has been shifted to a private room from the intensive care unit (ICU).

The Mughal-E-Azam actor is married to veteran actress Saira Banu.

“Dilip Kumar seemed cheerful, at least when he saw me. Sairaji 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,” Amitabh posted on his blog.

“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,” wrote Big B, who played Dilip Kumar’s rebellious son in the movie Shakti.

According to a source, Dilip Kumar may be discharged from the hospital in a couple of days.
