MUMBAI: Veteran Bollywood actor Manoj Kumar, who was reportedly shell-shocked upon hearing the news of his colleague and good friend Pran’s sad demise last week, has himself been admitted to hospital.
Kumar, famous for patriotic films, has been admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in suburban Andheri for the last two days, for pain in his gall bladder.
Sources revealed that the legendary actor Manoj Kumar is now doing fine and will be discharged in a couple of days.
Ever since Pran saab’s death last week, Manoj Kumar had reportedly gone into a saddened silence.
A friend of Kumar admitted: “I tried getting in touch with Manoj saab after I heard the news of Pran saab’s death. I know how close they were. But all his home numbers were unreachable. Manoj saab doesn’t carry a cellphone. So I had no option but to drive down to his bungalow. At the main entrance, I was told I couldn’t meet him and that Manoj saab would be attending Pran Saab’s funeral on Saturday. However, Manoj saab didn’t keep that appointment.”
