Film personalities like Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek, Rishi Kapoor with brother Randhir, Salim Khan and son Salman Khan, Manoj Kumar, Madhur Bhandarkar, Bappi Lahiri, Sanjay Dutt with Manyata and others visited Matoshree to enquire about Thackeray's health.

Bal Thackeray's health became very critical on Wednesday night and he was put on life-support system.

A team of doctors stationed inside 'Matoshree' with nursing staff has been taking care of the Sena patriarch, who is having breathing problems.

His son and Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray said late on Thursday night that Balasaheb's condition was 'stable'.

"Our feelings and wishes for him are the same. His condition has been stable since Wednesday. His treatment is underway. I repeat what I said on Wednesday that we will not give up. The power of our prayers will help him recover. Let's continue praying for him. I have full faith that he will recover," he added.
