7 Sep – Bollywood legend Saira Banu has recently been discharged from the hospital following a previous treatment.

The news was revealed by family friend Faisal Farooqui, who tweeted on 5 September, "Saira Banu ji is back home. Discharged from the hospital. Doing well. Resting. Your love and prayers are truly appreciated."

The "Junglee" star was admitted to Mumbai's Hinduja Hospital more than a week ago after complaining of breathlessness and other complications including high blood pressure.
