Kumar’s breathlessness is also under control. However, he will continue to remain in the hospital for a day or two.

“His breathlessness seems to be under control. He is still being kept under observation (in ICU) that is what the family wants. Looking at his age and all they want to make sure he is problem free before he leaves from here, a hospital source told PTI.

The 98-year-old legendary actor was taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital, on Tuesday, to “address medical issues” related to old age after he complained of “breathlessness”.

Kumar was earlier admitted to the same hospital on June 6 due to episodes of breathlessness.
