Veteran Bollywood actor Avtar Kishan Hangal (fondly known as AK Hangal), who had worked in more than 200 films, is in critical condition, his family said on Saturday.

He was admitted in Mumbai's Asha Parekh Hospital last week after he slipped and fell in washroom and suffered a back injury.

According to reports, the above 95-year-old actor fell in the bathroom on August 13 and was admitted to the hospital on Aug 16.

He had to undergo a surgery but it could not take place as doctors found that the veteran actor had congestion in his chest.

Confirming the reports, his son Vijay Hangal told media that the condition of his father is critical and he is in Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Born in 1917, Hangal spent his childhood in Peshawar, where he had performed in theatre for some major roles.

His primary occupation for the early part of his life was that of a tailor.

Hangal was an active participant in the Indian freedom struggle.

He moved to Mumbai after the Partition of India in 1949 after 3 years in prison in Pakistan. Hangal was involved with the theatre group IPTA along with Balraj Sahni and Kaifi Azmi.

He started his Hindi film career at the very late age of 50 with Basu Bhattacharya's TEESRI KASAM in 1966 and SHAGIRD.

He was seen playing the on-screen father or uncle in several films from 1970's to 1990's.

Hangal was seen in several films like NAMAK HARAAM, SHAUKEEN , SHOLAY, AAINA , AVTAAR, ARJUN, AANDHI, TAPASYA, KORA KAGAZ, BAWARCHI, CHHUPA RUSTAM, CHITCHOR, BALIKA BADHU, GUDDI, NARAM GARAM.

His fans will remember him playing some crucial characters in films like SHARARAT (2002), TERE MERE SAPNE (1997) and LAGAAN.
