Monday September 16, 2013 8:27 PM, IANS

The condition of veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who suffered a heart attack Sunday, is stable in Lilavati hospital, a hospital spokesperson said Monday.

"He suffered a myocardial infarction (heart attack) yesterday (Sunday). All treatment as per protocol was instituted," said the spokesperson.

Dilip Kumar, 90, was rushed to the hospital and admitted in the intensive care unit (ICU) and continues to remain there.

In view of his advanced age and post-bypass status, he requires close monitoring in the ICU and is under the care of cardiologist Nitin Gokhale.

"At present his condition is stable," said the spokesperson.

Earlier, his wife and former actress Saira Bano had told reporters that the thespian had been admitted to hospital following "discomfort". Later the hospital authorities informed that discomfort was caused due to heart attack.

Born as Mohammed Yusuf Khan in Peshawar, now in Pakistan, the 90-year-old adopted the film name of Dilip Kumar and was active in the Indian film industry for over six decades and worked in some of the best films like "Madhumati", "Devdas", "Ram Aur Shyam" and "Karma".

He was honoured with Padma Bhushan in 1991 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994. Also, in 1998, he was awarded the 'Nishan-E-Pakistan', Pakistan's highest civilian award.
