“Out of the ICU, it’s good to be in the hospital suite and have @SrBachchan as a visitor,” Dilip saab posted on Twitter along with a picture of himself with the actor, wife Saira Banu and brother-in-law Sultan Ahmed.
“Mr. Bachchan came to meet Dilip Kumar today around 7 pm. They chatted for around half an hour. As far as Dilip Kumar’s health is concerned he is absolutely fine and he now desperately wants to go back home,” Udaya Tara Nayar, Dilip Kumar’s close friend, told news agency IANS. Soon after the visit, Mr Bachchan wrote on his blog about the visit. “I had never met him so … in bed, in hospital, ailing and troubled and harassed by all the medical fuss around him .. Dilip Kumar !! the great thespian, the wonder of Indian cinema, the ultimate performer in my eyes, lying there in Lilavati Hospital, recovering from a recent mild heart attack!” Big B wrote.
“He seemed cheerful .. at least when he saw me … Saira ji warned me that he had been quite irritable and non cooperative throughout the day, and so to excuse any kind of untoward behaviour that he may dole out to me … but he was gracious and kind .. repeatedly he kept saying ‘wah<' 'wah' and then slipping into repetitions of Allah," Mr Bachchan added.
