Veteran Bollywood actor Dharamendra has been admitted to a hospital as he was suffering from gastro infection and is on recovery path now.

The actor was admitted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai last afternoon and was put on antibiotic treatment after he suffered gastroenteritis, an intestinal infection marked by diarrhoea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and fever, doctors said.

"He is responding to the treatment well. He is recovering now and doing much better. We will observe him tomorrow and he might be discharged either by tomorrow evening or the day after," Dr Vishesh Agrawal told PTI.

The Bollywood legend celebrated his 81st birthday early this month.
