Actor-politician Sunny Deol on Monday said that his father, cinema icon Dharmendra, is “in the best of health”. The actor’s reaction comes in the wake of speculative stories in the media about the ill health of the veteran actor. Sunny Deol told PTI, “My father is absolutely great and healthy. He is doing well.”
His younger brother, actor Bobby Deol, said that his father is currently at his Mumbai home and it is “sad that people spread rumours”. “He (my father) is in Mumbai and he is absolutely fine,” Bobby Deol told PTI.
Dharmendra, 86, was admitted to the hospital last month for back pain.
In his illustrious career, the actor has starred in classics such as “Sholay”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Yaadon Ki Baaraat”, “Satyakam” and “Seeta Aur Geeta”.
