Dilip Kumar, who is undergoing treatment for kidney-related problems at Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai, is showing signs of improvement day by day, said a senior official from the hospital.

Doctors are happy with how the 94-year-old actor is responding to treatment, Ajay Kumar Pande, Vice President, Lilavati Hospital, told IANS.

"Dilip saab's health has improved as compared to yesterday. His creatinine levels have come further down, and doctors are happy with these signs," Pande said.

Dilip Kumar is in the ICU.

"He has eaten food on his own and that's a very good sign. He's alert and we are happy with how his health is improving," Pande added.

The thespian was admitted to the hospital on 2 August due to dehydration and urinary tract infection. High potassium and creatinine levels had raised concerns that he may have to be put on dialysis, but doctors decided against it after he started responding well to treatment.
