Bollywood ignores Dilip Kumar!
It has been four days since legendary actor Dilip Kumar has been admitted into a suburban Mumbai hospital. Yet no one from the industry – barring Prem Chopra – has paid him a visit. The thespian has been diagnosed with malaria and is recuperating in the same VIP ICU that Shiv Sena head honcho Bal Thackerey was admitted few weeks ago.A source close to the actor reveals that the only person from Bollywood who’s paid Yusufsaab a visit so far is Prem Chopra.Pran who stays nearby also called up,” we are told.
The list ends there. The 86-year-old Dilip Kumar may not have socialised much in the recent past.But he did make it a point to visit ailing co-stars and spend time with the family of his departed colleagues.Dilip Kumar was last seen at the funeral of BR Chopra with his wife Saira Banu. Incidentally, when Amitabh Bachchan was admitted in the same hospital a few years ago, every celebrity worth their salt made their presence felt.
Dilip Kumar who has retired from acting almost a decade ago did however receive calls from Bal Thackerey, a former friend with whom he had fallen out and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
