Veteran actor Geeta Kapoor who has recently been in news because she was abandoned at a Mumbai hospital by her children. Filmmakers Ashoke Pandit and Rakesh Taurani had found out about the ailing senior citizen, and have taken full charge of taking care of her now.
Today when we called Mr Pandit to enquire about Geeta Kapoor, he said, “We just shifted Geetaji to Jeevan Asha Oldage home in Andheri. She is stable, but still cries every now and then and enquires about her son. She keeps on asking how Raja left her in the hospital like this, she is inconsolable. However, we have managed to settle her. The old age home is good, she will be taken care of properly, there is a hospital within the old age home in case of an emergency.”
Ashoke Pandit who has made sure that Kapoor is kept as comfortable as possible is a filmmaker and also a member of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Ramesh Taurani is a film producer. Kapoor was at a hospital with the bill running up to Rs 1.5 lakh. After leaving her at the hospital, her son changed homes and refused to answer his phone. A police case has been registered against Kapoor’s children.
