"By the grace of God, Dilip Sahab is at home and doing well. God has been very kind. Sahab believes that to be surrounded by family and friends who love him unconditionally is therapy by itself," the post read.

"Sahab is blessed with the prayers and love of his millions of fans, admirers, friends and well wishers.

"Dilip Sahab himself will be back on twitter soon, Insha'Allah."

Kumar was last seen on-screen in the 1998 film 'Qila'.
