On June 30 when the actor was admitted to the hospital, Saira stated that he was okay and the health condition was stable. But the complications from the health span took the actor away from the audience.
With every reader wanting to know the cause of the death, here it is. The actor complained of breathlessness and was admitted to the hospital. Later Dilip was diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion that resulted in a build-up of excess fluid between the layers of pleura outside of the lungs.
