The Mughal-E-Azam actor was taken to the hospital on 5 September after facing respiratory issues. He was later diagnosed with Aspiration Pnemonia, a kind of lung infection. A large amount of food had also entered his lungs, making his condition worse. However, according to the new report, he has been discharged but has been prescribed heavy medication. Saira Banu, veteran actress and his wife, had also taken to Twitter a few days after his hospitalisation to thank his supporters and fans for their prayers.
