Legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar has been quietly involved in a legal squabble about a bounced cheque, his wife Saira Bano revealed on Twitter yesterday.

And the 94-year-old actor has just been pronounced 'not guilty' by a Mumbai court. Although Dilip sahab was required to be present at court for the hearing, he was excused for health reasons.

Saira Banu had used her husband's Twitter handle before the hearing to inform his fans of the hearing:

She also sought their prayers and revealed that Dilip sahab was suffering from neurological problems:

The case involved a Kolkata-based business named GK Exim India Private Limited, where he was honorary chairman back in 1998. Dilip sahab was implicated in the case, along with three other directors. The court today absolved Dilip sahab and another accused of all charges and held two directors 'guilty.'
