Wrestler-turned-actor Dara Singh, who was battling for his life in a Mumbai hospital since the last four days, passed away on Thursday. He was 84.
This was confirmed in a Hindustan Times report.
Singh was shifted back home on Wednesday night after doctors said he has "less chance of recovery" due to significant damage to his brain.
"He is already home. Please don't follow us. When he breathes his last, I'll let you know. There is no hope," his son Vindu Dara Singh told reporters.
He was admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in an emergency condition on July 7. He had suffered a cardiac arrest and since then he has been in the ICU.
The Commonwealth wrestling champion entered film industry in the fifties and is known for his roles in King Kong and Faulad. He was last seen in Imtiaz Ali's Jab We Met (2007) playing Kareena Kapoor's grandfather.
The veteran actor had played the character of Hanuman in Ramanand Sagar's epic television series Ramayan.
