Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has been admitted to Hinduja Hospital in Khar, Mumbai, after he was diagnosed with pneumonia. The 70-year-old actor was taken to the hospital on June 29 and is recuperating.
Naseeruddin Shah’s manager confirmed the news to indianexpress.com. “Sir was hospitalised on June 29, but he is now doing well. There is a pneumonia patch on his lungs, and the treatment is going on. He might be discharged today or tomorrow,” he said.
Actress Ratna Pathak Shah, wife of Naseeruddin Shah, told a leading publication that the actor should be discharged by Thursday. She told Pinkvilla, “He is perfectly alright. There is a minor patch on his lung, which they have been treating. He should be discharged by tomorrow hopefully.”
She added, “It’s pneumonia, but it’s fortunately very small and in one little corner so hopefully it won’t require much more work.”
The actor was last seen in Vivek Agnihotri’s The Tashkent Files, Seema Pahwa’s Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi, and Zee5’s Mee Raqsam. His performance in Amazon Prime video’s Bandish Bandits was highly appreciated by critics and audiences equally.
The three-time National Award winning actor has been honoured with the Padma Shri and the Padma Bhushan for his contributions to Indian cinema.
