'Pakeezah' actress Geeta Kapoor's son dumped her in hospital


Here is a heartbreaking story of a yesteryears actress Geeta Kapoor, who starred in hit movie like ‘Pakeezah’. Geeta Kapoor is in a very pathetic condition as her son abandoned her in the hospital. Since a month ago Geeta Kapoor (58), a resident of Andheri has been admitted to SRV hospital. Her son Raja has left her in the hospital in the pretext to find ATM to pay the hospital bills. He left her in the hospital and never returned to meet his mother. His son Raja admitted her mother on April 21 for getting treatment for falling blood pressure.

After several attempts, when hospital authority failed to to contact her son and daughter (Pooja), the hospital authority contacted Police. In an interview to Marathi channel TV9, Geeta Kapoor couldn't control her tears as she shared her agony. During the interview, she revealed that she has worked as a junior artist in several films including ‘Pakeezah’ (1972).

Narrating her anguish, the elderly lady told Mid-Day, "He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that's why, he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled."

Dr Dipendra Tripathi who is treating Geeta told the daily, "Raja got her to us, lying about him being an army officer and she needing urgent treatment. He was asked to pay a deposit and complete the formalities. He left saying he would get money from the nearest ATM, but never returned. We had no option but to start the treatment as she was in a bad shape."

Reportedly, her son has vacated the house on that very day. Even her daughter Pooja, is least concerned about her mother. She is an air-hostess and currently residing in Pune. Doctor failed to contact her even.

Her medical bills ran up to 1.5 lakhs. On listening her painful story, film producer Ramesh Taurani and Ashoke Pandit have come forward to help Geeta Kapoor and pay the medical bills.
