It could have been a glum 94th birthday for Dilip Kumar because he was in the hospital, but the actor was determined to have a good time despite his recent health complications. On Sunday, the actor shared a pic in which he and wife Saira Banu were cutting his birthday cake in his hospital room. “Saira, helps me cut a cake…” the veteran actor captioned the pic, and by the looks of it, it’s quite a yummy cake at that. The pic sure comes as a relief to fans and the film industry after the actor’s sudden hospitalization last week.
Happy birthday to one of the greatest! @TheDilipKumar we wish you good health and happiness Dilip sahib.

He was admitted to Lilavati hospital in Bandra, Mumbai, last Tuesday after he complained of pain and swelling in his right leg. He was rushed to the hospital and has been recovering since. After an outpour of good wishes, he had written, “Thank you for all the beautiful and lovely messages. Your love and affection has been so enduring and so touching, your heartfelt messages on this medium brought tears to my eyes.”
