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

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

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.
