Indian cinema legend Dilip Kumar passed away in Mumbai’s Hinduja Hospital on Wednesday. He was 98. Now, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan penned a heartfelt note for the late actor on his official Twitter handle. The Radhe star shared a throwback picture of them. He tweeted, "Best actor indian cinema has ever seen and will ever see … #RIP Dilip Saab. "Personalities from the world of politics, entertainment and sports mourned his loss.
Doctors said Dilip Kumar suffered from advanced prostate cancer that had spread to other organs of his body. “He had water in pleural cavity, and he suffered a kidney failure. He required blood transfusion multiple times. We carried the last transfusion but it did not help,” a hospital doctor said. He suffered a drop in blood pressure and haemoglobin towards the end. “The cancer spread made it difficult to treat him,” the doctor said. Some of his best known films are Devdas, Mughal-e-Azam, Gunga Jamuna, Ram Aur Shyam, Naya Daur, Madhumati, Kranti, Vidhaata, Shakti and Mashaal, to name just a few.
