"Dilip Kumar saheb stable and well .. in touch with Saira ji, who informs me so .. duas and prayers for his speedy recovery !!," tweeted Bachchan.
"Shall visit Dilip Kumar Saheb in hospital, as soon as he is allowed visitors .. Meanwhile he remains cheerful and strong !!" he posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Dilip Kumar was admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai late on Sunday after he complained of uneasiness, chest pain and fever.
The 90-year-old actor was immediately shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital.
"Dilip saab is stable now. He is conscious now. We are praying for his full recovery," his wife and yesteryear actress Saira Banu told reporters.
"Dilip saab was suffering from viral fever from Sept 13. Since he was feeling weak and complained of discomfort, we brought him to the hospital as a precautionary action," said Saira Banu.
