Fragile, handle with Prayer."
A statement issued by Indraprastha Apollo Hospital authorities
said, "Mr Navjot Singh Sidhu was admitted to Indraprastha Apollo
Hospitals Delhi today evening with acute deep vein thrombosis
(DVT). This is a life threatening condition if not treated on time.
Mr Sidhu has been put on blood thinners and has been recovering
well. His condition is said to be stable as of now."
DVT is caused by a blood clot in deep veins that affects the
normal blood flow. Non-specific symptoms include pain, redness,
swelling, warmness and engorged superficial veins.

next shooting is on October 13, 2015, and I hope he will be out of
hospital by that time.
Kiku added, "We also have shot with Shandaar cast which will go
on-air on Oct 18, 2015. So I don't think we need to worry."
