Two months ago, Amar Singh was hospitalized in Mumbai for what was said to be 'routine" investigation and tests. It now appears the tests were not so routine. And that Amar Singh might be more seriously ill than his protective friends are willing to let out.
Sanjay Dutt"s flying visit from Goa to visit his mentor in the Batra hospital in Delhi on 5th June is proof that all is not well with Amar Singh"s health.
Having resolved to shoot uninterrupted in Goa, Dutt"s decision had to be hurriedly revoked when news of Amar Singh"s re-hospitalization reached the sensitive and emotional actor. According to the unit, Dutt wanted to immediately rush to Delhi, but decided to wait till pack-up on 4th June evening before hiring a private jet to fly him to Amar Singh.
Says a source close to Dutt, “Sanjay wanted to go to Delhi the minute he heard that Amar Singhji was unwell. But then he came to know that 5th June was his All The Best co-star Fardeen"s father Feroz Khan"s fortieth-day rituals. So, Sanjay flies off to Delhi from Goa by a chartered plane on 4th evening after pack-up and will spend the entire day on the 5th with Amar Singh. He resumes shooting on the 6th when Fardeen also returns from Mumbai after attending his late father"s rituals."
In the meanwhile Rohit Shetty would continue shooting action scenes. By sheer coincidence, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan happened to be in Delhi when Amar Singh was hospitalized. The father and son paid the ailing politician a visit on Tuesday.
