Saif Ali Khan hospitalised
Saif Ali Khan was admitted to hospital on Sunday night after complaining of serious pains in his chest.Saif had just landed from South Africa and was busy rehearsing for his performance at an awards function when he sudenly had some acute pain in his chest. Saif was immediately rushed to Leelavati hospital in Mumbai. An angiography was immediately taken and Saif was diagnosed with some mild blockage in his heart. However the actor now seems to be out f danger and is recuperating well.
Saif is now out of danger and his mother, actress Sharmila Tagore and sister Soha were present with him at the hospital. Sharmila says "He is now out of danger and there are no blood cloths. Doctors have said there is nothing to worry about." Director Siddharth Anand who has worked with Saif in Hum Tum and is a very close friend said "Saif had a small cloth in his heart which has already been dissolved with medicines. He is absolutely fine now. It happened largely due to stress." Saif may be kept in hospital for a day or two more under observation just as a precautionary measure. However he will no doubt have to slow down a bit now with his hectic lifestyle and take it easy for some time. The actor however seemed fine after the pains had subsided and was up and chatting with his friends who had dropped in to see him. Saif's younger sister Soha Ali Khan too was extremely concerned about his health and said "Saif has been travelling alot recently and this obviously took its toll on him. However he is stable now and there is nothing to worry about." Although mom Sharmila is worried about her son, Saif's health, she feels that she will not ask him to take it easy with his work as she feels "For a man it's very important to keep working,Saif needs to work to his optimum.But I'll certainly ask him to stop smoking,also to exercise and follow a disciplined lifestyle."
Several of Saif's co-stars and friends from the film industry dropped in to check on him.Amitabh Bachchan with soon to be daughter-in-law Aishwarya came in to see the actor. Amitabh says "I was at an awards function with Aishwarya when I came to know that Saif had been hospitalised.We went immediately after the show to see him and I told him he must slow down and that it's disturbing to see such a fine lad this way."
