Megastar Amitabh Bachchan wished “greatest Dilip Kumar” on his birthday in a unique way. As the veteran actor turned 94 on Sunday, Amitabh Bachchan turned to his Twitter account and re-posted a couple of images showing the bond between the two actors. One of those images was of 1982-released Shakti movie. Bachchan posted the pic with “Happy birthday Dilip Saheb…this the mahurat shot for SHAKTI on Juhu beach”.

He further sent prayers for good health for Dilip Kumar who has been hospitalised since earlier this week after swelling on his right leg. The 74-year-old wrote “To the greatest .. Dilip Kumar .. on his birthday Dec 11, wishes prayers and duas for good health and happiness”.

Meanwhile, Dilip Kumar will remain in hospital following his illness. “He is resting now. He is in the ICU, but he is doing well, there is nothing to worry. Close family and friends have been visiting him since morning. We will cut the cake once he is awake. It will be a quiet birthday this time,” his wife and veteran actress Saira Banu told PTI today.
