Veteran actor Anupam Kher had a health scare while he was in New York to attend the IIFA Awards. As per a recent report, Anupam said,
Firstly it was not a heart-related ailment, meaning a heart attack as the blind item in the tabloid implies. Why so coy about it? I’ve nothing to hide. We were all together in Salman Khan’s room in New York when I had a blackout. I had not eaten anything for one and a half days—big mistake—and my sugar-level had fallen dangerously. This of course I didn’t know when the blackout happened.
Salman Khan was present with Anupam when the incident happened. He rushed and panicked, and called the para-medics. Anupam revealed in a report,
He called the para-medics who rushed in immediately. Laws in the US about medical emergencies during international events are very strict. No one can take then lightly. I told the para-medics I was okay, and didn’t need any further treatment. But they insisted on a full medical investigation.
Later, under supervision, Anupam went through many tests and was later declared in perfect health. He thanked Salman for doing things timely, else, it would have taken on his health.
He not only called for medical help he remained on alert all through. I am blessed to have friends like him in the film industry.
Anupam Kher recently appeared in a small role in Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Indu Sarkar’.
