Veteran Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha was admitted to the Kokilaben hospital in suburban Andheri in Mumbai following respiratory disorder. The doctors attending on him said that the 66-year-old actor-turned-politician was rushed to the hospital on Monday afternoon after he complained of breathlessness due to some ongoing paint work at his residence.
Talking to the PTI, Dr Ram Narain of the Kokilaben hospital said, "He came to the hospital complaining of breathing problems. He had allergic respiratory disorder. He was given appropriate treatment and is stable now."
Shatrughan Sinha is now stable and responding to the medical treatment. The doctors say that the former BJP minister will spend the night in the hospital and a decision on when to discharge him will be taken today. He is likely to be discharged from the hospital today.
