COVID-19: Veteran Actor Dilip Kumar’s Younger Brother Passes Away
Ehsan Khan, brother of veteran Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar, died of COVID-19 related complications in Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital.
Veteran star Dilip Kumar’s younger brother Ehsan Khan, who tested positive for Coronavirus in August, died on Wednesday (September 2) at the age of 90. Dilip Kumar’s family friend Faisal Farooqui shared this news via the actor’s official Twitter account. The tweet read, “Dilip Saab’s younger brother Ehsan Khan passed away a few hours ago. Earlier, youngest brother Aslam has passed away. We are from God and to Him, we return. Please pray for them.” Kumar’s brothers Ehsan Khan and Aslam Khan were admitted to Lilavati Hospital on August 15 after they complained of breathlessness and eventually tested positive for COVID-19.
Aslam Khan died of COVID-19 a week later, on August 21. He was 88 years old. Meanwhile, in March, Dilip Kumar had revealed that he and his actress wife Saira Banu are under “complete isolation” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 97-year-old cinema icon also urged people to stay indoors and follow all guidelines to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
