In the latest video uploaded on his YouTube channel, Shoaib gave updates about the health of both Dipika Kakar and their baby boy. He said, “Day by day thoda sa improvement dikh raha hai usme. Doctors are very confident ki bohut jald woh theek hojayega. ‘Aap usko apne saath ghar pe leke jayenge' (Day by day there is some improvement in his health. Doctors are very confident that he will recover soon, and they said, 'Soon, you will be able to take him home').” Shoaib further revealed that things are moving towards normalcy and the baby is on the road to recovery. Therefore, he will be kept in the NICU for a few more days.
