‘The Shaukeens’ leading lady Lisa Haydon is down with dengue and skipped the film’s promotion due to her poor health.
Lisa’s co-star Akshay, who is also the producer of the remake of the 1982 film of the same name, said she gave the promotion a miss to take care of her health.
“Lisa is very much in Delhi but she could not come for the promotions because she is suffering from dengue. She was supposed to come here for the promotion but she could not. She has apologised for not being able to make it to the event,” Akshay said during the promotion of ‘The Shaukeens’.
Anupam Kher, who is also a part of the film, said she was in hospital before and recovered too but she again fell ill. “Her mother has come from Mumbai to attend to her because she can’t stand and walk. I feel, we have to admit her in the hospital,” Kher said.
Also starring Piyush Mishra and Annu Kapoor, the film will hit theatres on November 7. The film is written by Tigmanshu Dhulia and directed by Abhishek Sharma.
