A post from Dilip Kumar's official Twitter sought help from the prime minister and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis:

Dilip Kumar turned 96 just earlier this week. He also been in an out of the hospital in the past few months. From the film fraternity, Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have visited Kumar in the recent past, but the fear of catching an infection through outsiders keeps the family away from letting people come too often.

Last year, Saira had complained that Bhojwani, on the basis of forged and fabricated documents, was claiming to be the owner of their bungalow. This led the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police to register a case of cheating against him.
