Veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who was under observation in the intensive care unit of Lilavati hospital following a heart attack, was Sunday shifted out after improvement in his health, said Murshid Khan, an aide. Khan is the manager of Dilip Kumar's wife and yesteryear actress Saira Banu.

The veteran actor tweeted on Sunday: "Thank you for your prayers and love. Resting in the hospital." The actor also posted a video where wife Saira Banu and a doctor is seen.

"Dilipji is absolutely fine now. He is feeling much better. He has been shifted to the normal ward from the ICU. Most probably he will get discharged in the next three days," Khan told IANS.

The 90-year-old actor was hospitalised after he complained of uneasiness.

A leading light of the Mumbai film fraternity, the thespian entertained movie buffs for six decades both as a lead hero and as character artist in films like Jwar Bhata, Mela, Naya Daur, Tarana, Ganga Jamuna, Leader, Mughal-E-Azam, Shakti, Karma and Saudagar.
