Bollywood had a hit male Jodi in the 70s and they were Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor, who gave blockbusters like Shaan, Suhaag, Deewar, Imaan Dharam, Trishul etc. Now, Shashi is suffering from age related illness and is admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on 12th December.
At the same time, Shashi Kapoor"s elder brother veteran star Shammi Kapoor also fell ill and is admitted to Breach Candy hospital. Recently, Big B went to meet both of them and shared the same on his blog and Twitter page. Amitabh was very sad to see his co-stars and close friends lying on hospital bed in such condition. The sources from both the hospitals have informed that both Shammi and Shashi are suffering from age-related illness but their conditions are stable now.
Shammiji is reportedly suffering from kidney ailments and is recovering. Big B posted that he was pained to see Shashi. “When I had visited Shashi Kapoor ji in hospital the other day and written about it, a member of our FmXt raised a point of ethics in doing so and objecting that there is a certain code of conduct in the medical profession and a moral code in society where such descriptions are not permitted," he wrote, adding, "I did mention in detail my visit to the hospital and I did talk about it on my blog, primarily because Mr Shashi Kapoor is no ordinary individual."
Speaking about Shammiji, Big B said that he was in his usual charming self and was joking over his health condition. “I have been to visit Mr Shammi Kapoor this evening too in hospital. He is unwell, in a different hospital. He was his most charming self as always and joked and laughed over his condition. I gave him a copy of the special edition 'Madhushala" that we had brought out on my Father"s 101 st and he was delighted," he wrote.
Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, there were hardly any visitors from Bollywood, which was once ruled by the Kapoor brothers. We at Oneindia wish speedy recovery to the veteran stars!
