The visit came after the 94-year-old returned home following a week long stay at the Lilavati Hospital here for kidney related problems.
The veteran actor's wife Saira Bano on Tuesday took to Twitter to share a string of photographs of Shah Rukh Khan and Dilip Kumar.
In one of the photographs the Dear Zindagi star is seen kissing Dilip Kumar's forehead.
"Message from Saira Banu: Sahab's mooh bola beta (son) Shah Rukh Khan visited Sahab today. Sharing some photos of the evening," the caption said.
His wife also said Dilip Kumar was "doing much better".
"Shah Rukh Khan visited Sahab this evening. Sahab's doing much better since (he) returned from the hospital. Shukar Allah." Dilip Kumar was admitted to the hospital on August 2 following dehydration and urinary tract infection. Last seen on the big screen in Qila in 1998, the actor was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015. He is known for films like Devdas, Mughal-e-Azam and Karma.
