Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar died on July 7 morning at 7.30 am after a week of hospitalization. Last week, he was admitted to Hinduja Hospital after complaining of breathlessness. However, his health condition deteriorated, and breathed his last at the hospital today, July 7. Soon after the news was officially announced, many celebrities took to social media to pay their tributes. Kamal Haasan shared a throwback photo with Dilip Kumar and wrote, "Dilip Kumar Saheb. A career that teaches many actors like me a standard and commitment to maintaining their performance. Truly one of the greatest actors of India leaves us today but leaves us with a treasure trove of his brilliance through his acting. His understated approach is still tried by contemporary actors who are brave enough to attempt it (sic)."
