Bollywood veteran Dilip Kumar, who is suffering from malaria, was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital here, a hospital official said Monday.

The 86-year-old actor will remain in hospital for two-three days, the official said.

The legendary actor was admitted to the hospital in Bandra late Sunday following fever which was not subsiding, according to the hospital spokesperson.

'Yes, he (Dilip Kumar) was brought to Lilavati Hospital,' hospital spokesperson Mohan Rajan told IANS.

Tests conducted on him showed that the actor was suffering from malaria. He has been put under the care of Doctor Jalir Parker, who treated Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray last week.

Dilip Kumar is responding to the treatment and the fever has subsided, cheering him up, according to family friends.

Last year, Dilip Kumar was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi on account of a urinary infection.

The actor, who is married to actress Saira Bano, is known for his landmark performances in films like 'Devdas', 'Madhumati', 'Ganga Jamuna', 'Mughal-E-Azam', 'Shakti' and 'Karma'.
