Bollywood thespian Dilip Kumar is “perfectly fine”, says actor Amitabh Bachchan, quashing rumours of the 91-year-old’s health on Twitter.
Big B chose to put all speculation to rest tweeting: “Some baseless rumours being spread about Yusuf Saheb – Dilip Kumar, being ill…Saira-ji just informed me he is perfectly fine.”
Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Bhanu recently attended Salman Khan’s sister Arpita’s wedding reception in Mumbai and the couple was ostentatious reception by the parents of the birde and Salman Khan’s family members.
In another statement, Saira Bhanu too brushed aside rumours of his ill-health castigating that wild speculation should not lead to such rumours. Meanwhile Dilip Kumar himself came on to Twitter to quash rumours.
He said: “Phone calls from all over the world. All night. Your love and prayers and Allah’s blessings cannot be thanked enough.” Though his tweet handle @TheDilipKumar not refreshed since June, the “Mughal-e-Azam” star said he would make it live again.
“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.
