Megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited ailing thespian Dilip Kumar, who is recuperating in a suburban hospital here following a "mild heart attack" a week ago.
Bachchan, 70, who is currently busy with his TV game show "KBC", met his "screen inspiration" last night at the Lilavati Hospital.
"I had never met him so... In bed, in hospital, ailing and troubled and harassed by all the medical fuss around him... Dilip Kumar!! the great thespian, the wonder of Indian cinema, the ultimate performer in my eyes, lying there in Lilavati Hospital, recovering from a recent mild heart attack," Bachchan posted on his blog.
Bachchan said that his "Shakti" co-star looked happy to see him.
"He seemed cheerful... At least when he saw me... Saira ji warned me that he had been quite irritable and non cooperative throughout the day, and so to excuse any kind of untoward behaviour that he may dole out to me... But he was gracious and kind... Repeatedly he kept saying 'wah' 'wah' and then slipping into repetitions of 'Allah'," Bachchan added.
Bachchan also prayed for a speedy recovery of the legendary actor.
"There is talk to bring him back home soon... That bodes well for him and his family... May he recover fully as soon as possible... Our prayers and 'duas' for him," Bachchan added.
Dilip Kumar, who is known for his powerpacked performances in "Madhumati", "Devdas", "Mughal-e-Azam", is expected to get discharged from the hospital this week.
