"We can't say he's out of danger right now. We have to see for at least two more days, right now there is no need for an ICU for him. We have kept him under close observation. We can't say about discharge. We'll decide after 72 hours of observation," said Jalil Parkar
"Dilip Sahab was admitted to Lilavati Hospital for treatment of high fever and chest infection on April 15 night. He was advised intravenous administration of antibiotics for speedy recovery. Oral drugs would not act as fast as the IV injections, the doctors advised. Hence it became necessary to shift him to the hospital"
"I got a call that he was unwell. He had fever and had vomited a few times. He was suffering from pneumonia as well. His white blood cells had shot up. We thought it would be better to admit him to hospital," said Dr Jalil Parkar
Dilip saab was not present in court. Yesterday, his wife Saira Banu sought 'prayers and support' from fans of the actor. She issued a series of tweets, revealing that her husband was suffering from 'neurological problems' but had never asked for the case to be adjourned

Dilip Kumar was presented with the Padma Vibhushan by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, in the presence of the actor's wife Saira Banu on December 13. Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis were among other dignitaries present at the actor's home when he received the award
"No matter how many awards he gets, it will be less for him because of his art, beauty and Sairaji's support. He is one of the greatest human beings apart from being an actor. I know them personally, so I can say that. It's a moment of big celebration," said Shah Rukh
"Dilip sahab used to do one film at a time in two or three years and he did relevant films like Paigham, Gunga Jumna. I don't know if today's generation will have this thing or not. Aamir Khan follows Yusuf sahab (Dilip Kumar). Even Shah Rukh Khan is doing work and Salman Khan is also doing well," Saira Banu said
Dilip Kumar tweeted: Tearful moment when the award was in my hands. How happy and proud my family was. Indeed Allah's mercy and blessing. Saira Banu said, "I am very proud with the honour that the government has given him. I was emotional. I am the proudest wife. Apart from the award people always love and respect him, that matters the most"
"Dilip saab never wanted to be in Hollywood and I am glad he didn't do Taj Mahal with Elizabeth Taylor. Imagine where would I go if he would have done the film and something would have happened between him and Elizabeth?" said Saira Banu. Dilip Kumar received the Padma Vibhushan honour on December 13
