Mumbai, Jul 06, 2021, IANS

Bollywood veteran Dilip Kumar's health is improving. The 98-year-old is currently recuperating in hospital.

The actor's wife, actress Saira Banu Khan, issued a statement late on Monday updating about his health.

The statement issued on Dilip Kumar's Twitter account, reads: "We are grateful for God's infinite mercy on Dilip Sahib that his health is improving. We are still in hospital and request your prayers and duas so that Insha'Allah he is healthy and discharged soon. Saira Banu Khan."

Dilip Kumar was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Hinduja Hospital, Khar, on June 29, after reportedly complaining of breathlessness.

A statement was issued on his behalf on Twitter the following day. It read: "Dilip Saab has been admitted to Hinduja Hospital, Khar to address medical issues related to illness which are frequently expected in a 98 year old. Your love and prayers are truly appreciated by Saab."

 

OTT a safer option now, says Kirti Kulhari 

 

Actress Kirti Kulhari has wowed the audience with her work on the digital platform including "Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors", "Bard Of Blood" and "Four More Shots Please!" She was recently seen in the digitally-released film "Shaadisthan". She says the OTT space has emerged a safer option for everyone.

"Theatres are very less of an option right now. People are not considering (visiting theatres). Producers and distributors themselves are not considering doing theatre (release) because there is so much at risk. The world is in such a transit right now that it can really be a huge loss if the theatre thing does not work," Kirti told IANS.

"OTT has become a safer option now and a great option because you get to do what you love doing, which is acting, and people get to see you, and you get to do something substantial without the burden of whether a film would run at the box-office or not," she added.

The 38-year-old actress further said: "You just want to do your thing because you want to, and people watch it because they want to. I think everyone kind of gains from this kind of arrangement at the moment."

Kirti is now gearing up for the medical thriller web series "Human".
