After recuperating for 10 days in the Lilavati hospital in Bandra, a western Mumbai suburb, veteran actor Dilip Kumar was discharged today, September 16, following improvement in his condition.

The 90-year-old thespian was brought to the hospital on the evening of September 15 after he suffered a mild heart attack and was kept in the intensive care unit (ICU).

His actress wife Saira Banu, who was constantly by his side, had told reporters on September 16 that he had undergone a heart surgery 14 years ago.

"He is better and hence it was decided to take him home," sources close to the actor said today.

Kumar, who recently had his Shakti costar Amitabh Bachchan drop by at the hospital, had recently tweeted that he was eager to go home.

The news of his sudden hospitalisation had sent his fans and friends from the film industry into panic mode while his close friends and family maintained that it was just a cautionary move more than anything else.
