Veteran actor Dilip Kumar‘s younger brother, Ehsan Khan who had tested positive for COVID-19 last month, passed away on Wednesday at the Lilavati Hospital. Ehsan who was 90 years old also had heart disease, hypertension, and Alzheimer’s, according to the hospital.
On August 21, the actor’s youngest brother Aslam Khan breathed his last in Lilavati Hospital. After Aslam complained of breathlessness, he was rushed to the hospital, along with brother Eshan. Both the brothers tested positive for coronavirus and were admitted at the COVID-19 ward of the hospital.
Earlier in an interview with Hindustan Times, Dr Jalil Parker from Lilavati Hospital had earlier said that—, “They have been kept in ICU but we haven’t intubated them as yet. Considering their age and pre-condition health issues like diabetes and hypertension, we have to be extra careful while treating them.”
During the first phase of the coronavirus led lockdown, actor Dilip Kumar, 97, had taken to his Twitter to inform that he long with his wife and actress Saira Banu, were under “complete isolation” due to the coronavirus pandemic. His tweet read, “I am under complete isolation and quarantine due to the #CoronavirusOutbreak. Saira has left nothing to chance, ensuring I do not catch any infection”.
May his soul rest in peace.
