This is the second time since May that the 94-year-old singer has been hospitalised with same problems. However, Dey's condition has improved ever since he was hospitalised, Vasuki said, adding, he has been undergoing dialysis.

Born in Kolkata, the Dadasaheb Phalke awardee currently resides in Bangalore after spending more than 50 years in Mumbai.

Dey, who started his playback career with 1943 film 'Tamanna', has sung nearly 3,500 songs in Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada and Assamese films.

His hit numbers include songs like Puchho na kaise, aye meri zoharajabi, Laga chunri mein daag and Pyaar hua ikrar hua.
