Veteran actor Dilip Kumar says he is doing fine now and has thanked his fans for being by his side.

There were rumours that the 94-year-old star was not keeping well and earlier this month the legendary actor's wife Saira Banu took to his official Twitter account to give an update on his health.

The actor also thanked Punjab Association for honouring him with a lifetime achievement award.

On his return to the micro-blogging site, Kumar also shared a mural painted by artist Asid Farooqui.

The mural is a still from the actor's 1970 movie Gopi, which also starred Saira.

Kumar was last seen on-screen in the 1998 film Qila.

The thespian has been honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 1994 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 for his contribution to the Indian cinema.

The Pakistan government also honoured him with its highest civilian honour - Nishan-e-Imtiaz - in 1997.
