This was SRK’s second visit in six months.
Shah Rukh is dressed in black, while a shawl is wrapped around Dilip Kumar, who turned 95 in December last year.
The Padma Vibhushan awardee was treated for mild pneumonia in December 2017.
Shah Rukh last visited Dilip Kumar soon after the acting legend was discharged from Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital where he was being treated for dehydration and kidney malfunction in August, 2017.
The ‘Dilwale’ star is often believed to have been inspired by Dilip Kumar’s acting. In fact, many of his admirers feel that SRK’s acting style mirrors that of Kumar’s.
The nonagenarian debuted as an actor in Jwar Bhata. His career has spanned over six decades and 65 films.
He was also seen in iconic films such as Andaz, Babul, Deedar, Aan, Devdas, Azaad, Naya Daur, Yahudi, Madhumati, Kohinoor, Mughal-e-Azam, Gunga Jamuna and Ram Aur Shyam.
As an actor, he last graced the silver screen in 1998’s Qila.
