Rajesh Khanna will be discharged from the hospital in a day or two, confirmed actress and his estranged wife Dimple Kapadia. "He is doing well. He is much better now. He shall be discharged in a day or two," Dimple said.

The 69-year-old, who has been ill for quite a while, had been admitted to the Lilavati Hospital on Saturday. It was also reported that the actor had stopped taking food for three or four days.

But the next day, Rajesh Khanna stepped out of his Bandra bungalow, Aashirvad, to wave at fans. Dimple and son-in-law Akshay Kumar were at his side and said that he was fine.

Dimple added that "he is exhausted and a little weak" and that he doesn't have any liver infection.

Fondly called 'Kaka' by his fans, his golden era started with the 1969 blockbuster 'Aaradhana' and it was followed by hits like 'Do Raaste', 'Safar', 'Kati Patang' and 'Anand'.

In 1973, he married Dimple and has two daughters with her - Twinkle and Rinkie. The two separated in 1984 and thereafter lived separately.

He recently featured in an ad campaign.
