Actor Randhir Kapoor has been moved out of the intensive care unit (ICU) of Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai as his condition has been steadily improving.

The 74-year-old, who recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, told the news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) that he was only admitted to the ICU as a matter of precaution. 

"I am doing much better. I was in the ICU for a day, and then they moved me out because I didn't have any breathlessness. I had a high temperature. I am better now," Kapoor told PTI.

The artiste was hospitalized on 29 April and shifted to the ICU a day later. However, Kapoor had taken both doses of the COVID vaccine.

The actor had lost his younger brothers, Rajiv Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor, in the span of a year — 30 April marked the one-year anniversary of the passing of the latter while the former succumbed to a heart attack on 9 February this year. 

Kapoor is the latest member of the family to contract the disease after Ranbir Kapoor tested positive earlier.
