MUMBAI: Shatrughan Sinha is getting ready to return home after a month of hospitalization. The ground floor of the newly-renovated Sinha residence would contain all the equipment for Shatrughan Sinha’s exercizes.
Says a source, “Sonakshi will personally look into her father’s new physical regimen while his diet would be completely supervised and controlled by Mrs Punam Sinha. And when Shatruji returns home the inflow of guests would be gently controlled so that a strain is not imposed on the healing process,” says a family friend. But he is not going home right away.
Though fully recovered and raring to get back to a normal routine Shatrughan Sinha would be confined in his cushy suite on Tina Ambani’s hospital until the Sinhas’ newly-rebuilt residence , is considered a safe zone for the newly recuperated star. The star politician’s ailment began when he developed a ferocious allergy against the paint used in in the newly-renovated residence. It was suspected that the paint was adulterated. But now that suspicion has been dropped. Now the Sinha parivar just wants to make sure that everything is in perfect condition at home, and that Sonakshi gets time off from her hectic schedule to be home when he returns.
Says Punam Sinha, “Though he’s fine now, we aren’t taking him home yet. I am thinking of letting him stay in hospital for another week or so since he has to follow a physio-therapy rehabilitation regimen. If we return home he’d have to come to hospital everyday anyway. We might as well stay here for another week or ten days.” Punam Sinha wishes her husband to gain more strength to be able to cope with the torrent of visitors expected once he returns home. “He would love to meet everyone who drops in to look him up. But that would go against his post-surgery regime. Otherwise he’s fit and fine.”
There was also talk of the paint company being sent a legal notice for the allergy attack. The devoted wife poohpohs such strong-arm tactics. “It wasn’t adulterated paint that caused him the respiratory reaction. He’s allergic to paint and because our home was newly done, he suffered a severe reaction. Our home has duly been aired now. It waits for him.”
