Mumbai: Veteran actor Dilip Kumar says he doing fine now and has thanked his fans for being by his side.

There were rumours that the 94-year-old star was not keeping well and earlier this month the legendary actor's wife Saira Banu took to his official Twitter account to give an update on his health.

 

"God's grace and your prayers with me. I am much better. Slight discomfort and an irritating back pain (sic)," the latest tweet on Kumar's Twitter handle reads.

The mural is a still from the actor's 1970 movie ‘Gopi,’ which also starred Saira.

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