Legendary actor Dilip Kumar was rushed to Lilavati Hospital because of dehydration on late Wednesday night.

According to hospital sources, the 94-year-old actor was admitted with dehydration, but is stable now.

The superstar, who has been suffering from age-related problems in recent years, was accompanied by his wife Saira Banu.

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.
