The health of legendary actor Dilip Kumar, who had to be hospitalised in New Delhi recently, is fine and the thespian has returned to his home in Mumbai.
His wife and former actress Saira Banu said that Kumar was "well now and recuperating steadily".
She said they missed spending time with well-wishers and friends on Eid. The 86-year-old actor returned to Mumbai on October three.
"For years now it has been our good fortune to receive our friends in our home and exchange warm greetings on occasions like Eid, Diwali, Christmas, New Year, Dilip Sahab's birthday and our wedding anniversary," she said.
This year, our wedding anniversary on October 11 and Sahab's birthday on December 11 will be a little more special than usual, Saira said.
"He received wonderful treatment and loads of affection and personal attention from the physicians and nursing staff of Apollo Hospital in New Delhi," she said.
"It was high fever that came up with a urinary tract infection (UTI in medial parlance) which made hospitalisation necessary for investigations and monitoring," she added.
