Naseeruddin Shah gets discharged from hospital


Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah gets discharged from hospital. He was admitted to Mumbai’s Hinduja hospital last week and has been treated for pneumonia.

The 70-year-old was discharged and his actor son Viaan Shah shared pictures of his dad and mother Ratna Pathak Shah at home. He captioned the post, "Back Home" and "He just got discharged today morning."

In the pictures, Naseeruddin Shah can be seen wearing an orange tee and white pyjamas while Ratna Pathak Shah was dressed in a green outfit.

Fans expressed concern when Viaan shared the actor’s pictures as Shah looked frail.

When he was admitted to the hospital, Ratna Pathak Shah informed about his health status. She told PTI, "Yes (he has a) small patch and all under control. (He is) Responding well to treatment so hope he'll be discharged soon."

On the work front, Naseeruddin Shah will next be seen in a ‘Maarrich’, helmed by debutant Dhruv Lather. Shah will also feature alongside Rasika Dugal in the upcoming film ‘The Miniaturist Of Junagadh’.
