Dharmendra reacts to Saira Banu's hospitalisation

Veteran Bollywood actor Saira Banu was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a hospital in Mumbai earlier this week following complaints of low blood pressure and is doing well now. She reportedly suffered a minor heart attack. Reacting to Saira Banu's hospitalisation, veteran actor Dharmendra revealed that he was on a phone call with her a few days ago. He said, "I couldn't reach her and she had called back. She told me that she has not been keeping well."

He told ETimes, "I couldn't reach her and she had called back. She told me that she has not been keeping well." He added, "I did not ask too many questions but you can understand how she must be feeling after Dilip Kumar passed away. Sab kuch khaali khaali lag raha hoga (She must be feeling the void)."

The 77-year-old 'Padosan' actor, who lost her husband Dilip Kumar in July, was taken to the Khar Hinduja hospital three days ago, the official said. "She is admitted to the hospital due to low BP. She was brought to the hospital three days ago.

She is fine and much better now. There's nothing to worry about," he said, adding that he had spoken to the actor on Tuesday.

He said the hospital is not a Covid facility. She had tested negative for COVID-19 but was isolated as a norm in the wake of the pandemic. Saira Banu, who burst onto the screen with "Junglee" and went on to act in a range of films, is likely to be discharged in a day or two.

Her husband and screen icon Dilip Kumar died on July 7 at the age of 98 after a long ailment.
