Actress Soha Ali Khan says that her father, former cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, is recovering after contracting lung infection and is all right

"He (Mansoor) is all right but still in hospital. He's been there for about 18 days. We are praying and we want him to get well soon," Soha told IANS.

The actress was in the capital to flag off Cannon Photo Marathon aimed at bringing together photographic talents.

Mansoor was admitted to Sir Gangaram Hospital following interstitial lung disease, when the passage of oxygen to the two lungs is less than normal. As a result the patient breathes out more carbon dioxide.

His actor son Saif Ali Khan, also made his third Delhi trip Wednesday to meet his ailing father and was accompanied by girl friend Kareena Kapoor.
