Thespian Dilip Kumar is in the intensive care unit of the Lilavati Hospital, where he was admitted earlier this week because of dehydration. "He will need a dialysis", Dr Jalil Parkar has said, as per reports. "Cardiologist Dr Nitin Gokhale and nephrologist Dr Arun Shah are treating him", Ajaykumar Pande, Vice President Lilavati Hospital told PTI.

Kumar was admitted to the hospital in suburban Bandra on Wednesday morning after he suffered from dehydration and urinary tract infection. "Nothing to worry", explains Udaya Tara Nayar, a close friend of Dilip and Saira Banu, as well as his biographer, said. But he will be in hospital today.

The superstar, who has been suffering from age-related problems in recent years, was accompanied by his wife Saira Banu yesterday.

The actor is 94, and has been plagued with health-related issues since a few years. Though initially he was admitted into the ward, Dilip Kumar has been shifted later to ICU after he has been battling with renal failure. In 2016, he was hospitalised twice.
