Shatrughan Sinha to be discharged soon

Shotgun (Shatrughan Sinha), is recovering well, and is hoping to be discharged soon. The veteran actor was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital on July 2nd, 2012. The actor complained about breathlessness when he was admitted.

Later Dr.Anand Narain, COO, of the hospital told PTI, that he had blockages in the coronary artery and had to undergo a bypass surgery. He also said that Sinha is fine and responding properly to treatment. The surgery was conducted by surgeon Dr, Anvay Mulay.

The report about his successful bypass surgery was first tweeted by, Amitabh Bachchan. He had said in his blog, "Shatrughan Sinha in hospital with a bypass heart surgery. Jaya and I immediately went and visit him. He has done well and so have the doctors and he remains in his room, out of the ICU, chatting dime a dozen with his humor intact! So reassuring."  He further added, "Watching colleagues in hospital beds, suffering and in medical condition is disturbing. But Shatrughan is in good spirits, as he always is, talking non-stop and showing no signs of the trauma he has been through. Thank god."  

That Mr. Sinha would have to undergo a surgery was hidden by his family members, as was in the case of Rajesh Khanna. Mr. Khanna’s family members had hidden the fact that he was suffering from cancer.

Shotgun on his part was as talkative as ever. He was seen speaking to guests in his usual way. Though, during his one-month stay at the hospital he said that his family members have barred him from watching the television and also restricted the number of visitors due to his chatty nature.

He is supposed to be released within a week. The actor was quoted as saying, “By the grace of God, the excellent care taken by all the doctors and staff at this hospital, the good wishes of my fans and friends and most importantly my wife‘s constant attention and prayers I am now fully recovered, though I’ll be in hospital for a few days more for physiotherapy and tests before I am packed home.”  

He had also praised his fellow actors, Amitabh Bachchan, Ramesh Sippy, Akshay Kumar and Tina Ambani. He had particular praises for Akshay Kumar, with whom he would be acting in his next film. Akshay told him the benefits of eating, sleeping and exercising properly.

All Shatrughan Sinha’s fans wish him a speedy recovery.
