Reports earlier in the day suggested that the 75-year-old actor was suffering from a gastrointestinal problem and had also complained of pain in neck and spine. He was spotted leaving the hospital in a car with his son Abhishek. He had covered his face completely with his dark hat, perhaps to avoid the flashes from the paparazzi cameras.

The actor will be seen next in 102 Not Out, which also starring Rishi Kapoor. The teaser of the film, directed by Umesh Shukla, was released today on Twitter.

It is set to release in May this year.
