Fact Check: Old video of late Dilip Kumar in hospital goes viral

Hyderabad: When Bollywood is mourning the death of Dilip Kumar, some users are sharing several videos of the late actor on social media.


In one of the videos, the late actor is seen on the hospital bed and his wife Saira Banu is feeding him. It is being claimed it is the last video of Dilip Kumar.

Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search, which directed us to a video uploaded on September 22, 2013, on a YouTube channel `MouthShut.com'. According to the description, Dilip Kumar recuperated in a hospital in Mumbai on Sep 21, 2013.


Bollywood Fashion Trends used a screengrab from the video with the article on September 25, 2013.

The report had stated that the actor was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai due to a heart attack.

We finally found a tweet by the actor on September 22, 2013. He had shared the video on his Twitter handle informing about his recovery.



It is therefore evident that the video of the late actor that is being shared is old. It is not Dilip Kumar's video before death.
