After a string of online rumours of his ill-health, thespian Dilip Kumar on Tuesday took to Twitter to tell his friends and fans that he was well and healthy. He also thanked everyone for their concern.
"Phone calls from all over the world. All night. Your love and prayers and Allah's blessings cannot be thanked enough," the 91-year-old tweeted following almost a day of rumours about his health scare.
Dilip Kumar has not been active on Twitter and the last tweet from the @TheDilipKumar was way back in June. However, the Mughal-e-Azam star has plans to be regular on the social networking platform now - albeit with some help.
"I plan to be regular on this medium. I've asked @faisalMouthshut to post what I dictate and read to me your messages," he added.
The Twitter handle is that of Faisal Farooqui, the founder and CEO of MouthShut.com.
Earlier, megastar Amitabh Bachchan had taken to Twitter to tell fans that Dilip Kumar is "perfectly fine".
"Some baseless rumours being spread about Yusuf Saheb - Dilip Kumar, being ill...Saira-ji just informed me he is perfectly fine," he added.
Juhi Chawla also took to Twitter to say that the yesteryear's actor was healthy.
Dilip Kumar recently attended Salman Khan's sister Arpita's wedding reception in Mumbai with his wife Saira.
