Veteran Bollywood actress and wife of late legendary actor Dilip Kumar, Saira Banu is currently admitted to the Hinduja Hospital. The doctor has revealed that she has left ventricular failure and she would need to go through an angiography soon.

Saira Banu has suffered a left ventricular failure, confirmed the doctor attending her at the Hinduja Hospital. On Wednesday, an official statement from her family revealed that she was admitted to the hospital three days back due to blood pressure issues.

In an interview, her doctor, Dr Nitin Gokhale mentioned that she had breathing issues and diabetes problems as well. He revealed that even though her condition has been controlled, she would need to go through an angiography soon and the decision will be taken in a few days.

He was quoted as saying, “She is fine, she has completely stabilised, and we will be moving her out of the ICU either tonight or tomorrow. It will be cured. We first need to control her diabetes.” 

A source close to Saira’s family was quoted as saying, “We are not in a hurry to go in for the angiography. We will decide in 4 or 5 days.”

Saira Banu’s family friend Faisal Farooqui told newsmen “Saira ji is admitted to the hospital and the doctors have advised a few tests. Saira Ji’s doctor Nitin Gokhale suspects that there could be an issue with her left ventricular, for which she will need to go through an angiography, but that’s not urgent. But we are going with what the doctor says. All said and done, Saira ji is stable and should be out of the hospital soon.”

Earlier too, Faisal Farooqui had released a statement on the subject and said, “She was admitted to Hinduja Hospital at Khar three days ago due to chest congestion. She is now stable, and under a lot of observation and abundance of precautions, considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.”

Bollywood superstar Dharmendra recently opened up to the Entertainment Times about how Saira’s ill health has left him concerned.

“I couldn’t reach her and she had called back. She told me that she has not been keeping well…I did not ask too many questions but you can understand how she must be feeling after Dilip Kumar passed away. Sab kuch khaali khaali lag raha hoga (She must be feeling the void),” Dharmendra said of his contemporary.
