Actress Tabu, who was shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's Haider in Kashmir, fell ill due to severe cold and fever. It is reported that the Jai Ho actress was feeling suffocated and is admitted to Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS), today morning.
Tabu complained of breathlessness in the morning when she headed for the shooting. She was shooting for Haider in Nishad area of Srinagar and tried sitting next to a bonfire to feel a little better. Tabu, who was extremely tired due to cold, started to feel suffocated and rushed to hospital soon. It is also reported that the smoke from bonfire also worsened her condition.
The local unit coordinator quickly rushed her to hospital which was 13 km away from the shooting set. Sana Kulsum, PRO, SKIMS told the media, "Tabu was admitted in the morning at 9 am. The doctors kept her under observation, as she complaining of breathlessness."
After four hours, Tabu was discharged but she returned to shoot her scenes for the day, displaying her professionalism. Haider is based on Shakespeare's tragedy 'Hamlet'. Director Vishal Bharadwaj was always keen to adapt Shakespeare plays for Indian screen. The film that features Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu and Irrfan Khan is expected to be another feather in his cap.
