Legendary Bollywood actor Manoj Kumar has been admitted to the hospital, following an acute pain in the gall bladder. As per the media reports, the Veteran actor has been admitted to Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Andheri, Mumbai.
Sources also informed the media that Manoj Kumar will be discharged soon, since he has recovered a lot. Kumar, who was a great friend to the Bollywood's late legend Pran, was utter shocked over the latter's death. Manoj Kumar, better known as 'Mr Bharat' for portraying patriotic roles in Bollywood movies has worked in the film Upkaar, along with friend Pran.
Also, early this year, Kumar had filed a criminal case against Shahrukh Khan and Eros International, producers of 2007 hit Om Shanti Om, for re-releasing the film in Japan without deleting the controversial scenes taking a dig at him.
The actor had earlier lodged a defamation case in 2008, but had withdrawn it after Shahrukh and Farah Khan apologised and assured that the objectionable scene would be deleted from the movie. "First time (late) Yash Chopra got Shahrukh Khan and Farah Khan to my house and they said they will remove all those scenes from the film and then the things were sorted. But later, when they didn't do so, I told Yash Chopra about it and he said they have stabbed him in the back," Manoj Kumar told the IANS.
