MUMBAI: Bollywood veteran actress Sharmila Tagore has unfortunately missed the inaugural event of her deceased husband, Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi’s memorial lecture. The late cricketer’s wife who was very keen on attending the lecture couldn’t make it, since she has been hospitalized in an episode of food poisoning.
Sharmila Tagore, admitted at the Aashlok nursing home said, “I am really very sad that I couldn’t make it to Chennai for the inaugural lecture. I am suffering from severe bout of food poisoning and it became impossible for me to attend the event. I fell so ill that I have been admitted to a local nursing home.”
Adds the veteran actress, “Saif is shooting for ‘Bullet Raja’ while Soha is promoting her film ‘Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster Returns’. Saba was also busy on the day with her event. So, I was the only one who was free to attend the event today but I unfortunately fell ill.”
