Mumbai: Actress-politician Hema Malini has assured that Dharmendra is recovering well after he was admitted to a hospital following gastro infection.
The actor was admitted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai on Tuesday afternoon and was put on antibiotic treatment after he suffered gastroenteritis, an intestinal infection marked by diarrhoea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and fever, doctors said.
Thanking the fans for their concern, the 68-year-old actress confirmed that Dharmendra, 81, is likely to be discharged soon.
"Just to reassure everyone concerned about Dharamji in hospital - he is recovering well and is likely to be discharged soon. Thank you all (sic)," she wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Dharmendra's son and actor Sunny Deol asked people not to speculate about the star's health as he was only down with minor food poisoning.
"Thanks a lot for your concern about my father's health.
He was down with food poisoning and is recovering fast.
Please don't speculate about it," he tweeted....
