Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar is recovering after he was hospitalised with pneumonia over the weekend (06-07Dec14).

The Madhumati star was rushed to Lilavati Hospital & Research Centre in Mumbai, India with the lung condition on Saturday (06Dec14) but doctors say the 91 year old is making good progress and should be discharged within four days.

Dr. Jalil Parkar tells Indian news agency Ians, "He is fine right now and he is on antibiotics. He was diagnosed with pneumonia but he has been responding to the treatment very well.

"He is in the normal ward and not in the Icu. He has not had fever in the last 24 hours and his condition is much better now. There is also improvement in the lung infection and he is on the road to recovery. He will be going home in next 3-4 days."
