The 93-year-old thespian was admitted to Lilavati Hospital here around 2 AM, and was kept under observation with doctors stating that the next 72 hours were crucial.
    

Saira took to the actor's official Twitter account to give an update about his health. 
    

"Dilip Sahab was admitted to Lilavati Hospital for treatment of high fever and chest infection on April 15 night. 

 

He was advised intravenous administration of antibiotics for speedy recovery," Saira said in a statement.     

 

"Oral drugs would not act as fast as the IV injections, the doctors advised. Hence it became necessary to shift him to a hospital. He is recovering well and is stable by the grace of God and the care of the doctors treating him. He is in a room and in the hospital and not in the ICU as spread by rumours."
    

Earlier, a doctor attending to the actor had said that Dilip sa'ab would be kept under observation for 72 hours. 
    

"It takes time for a patient to respond to the treatment in the same way as it takes three hours for the food to digest," Dr Jalil Parker of Lilavati Hospital was quoted as saying.
