Chennai: Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh's father Vilasrao
Deshmukh (former Maharashtra Chief Minister) dies on Tuesday at
Global Hospital in Chennai. Vilasrao Deshmukh, who was 67 years,
was suffering from multiple organ failure, had cirrhosis of liver
and had dysfunctional kidneys.
Vilasrao Deshmukh was the Union minister and former Chief
Minister of Maharashtra. Efforts to save Deshmukh became futile
after a brain-dead man whose liver and kidney were to be
transplanted, died hours before the transplant.
According to reports, Vilasrao Deshmukh's illness was diagnosed
a year ago and to cure the disease, he also went for a surgery
abroad. But he fell critically ill recently as both his kidneys
stopped working. It was also reported that Vilasrao's star son
Riteish Deshmukh wanted to donate part of his liver to his father
to save his life.
