Kumar, who was admitted to Lilavati hospital in suburban Bandra on Tuesday following a swelling in his right leg, thanked fans and well wishers for their messages.
In a series of posts on Twitter, the actor also shared a picture of himself cutting the birthday cake sitting on the hospital bed.
“Saira, helps me cut a cake,” he captioned the picture.
Your love and affection has been so enduring and so touching, your heartfelt messages on this medium brought tears to my eyes.— Dilip Kumar (@TheDilipKumar) December 11, 2016
