Veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra visited South-Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital to undergo an MRI test after he sustained injuries on his shoulder during the shoot of ‘Second Hand Husband’.
According to sources, he did not require hospitalisation and left the hospital after the tests on Thursday (May 28). The actor’s office issued a statement saying, “Currently, he is fine and dubbing for the film.”
Earlier, however, there were reports that Dharmendra had been admitted to the hospital and that he was undergoing routine check up.
‘We are doing some investigations like MRI, X-Ray and all. Once the reports come, after that only we will be able to say something,’ Dr Sanjay Desai, orthopaedic, knee and shoulder specialist at Breach Candy Hospital said.
Last year too, in April, Dharmendra was advised complete bed rest by doctors, when he was shooting for a Punjabi film called ‘Double Trouble’. In 2010, the ‘Sholay’ actor was hospitalised in Chandigarh after complaints of chest pain.
Also known as the He-Man of Hindi cinema, Dharmendra has starred in over 100 movies with notable roles like that of ‘Sholay’, ‘Dharamveer’, ‘Aankhen’, ‘Anupama’, ‘Chupke Chupke’, ‘Naseeb’, ‘Dream Girl’ and ‘Charas’ among others.
The yesteryear actor has been conferrred with India’s third highest civilian honour Padma Bhushan. He has also been a member of the 14th Lok Sabha of India, representing Bikaner constituency in Rajasthan from Bharatiya Janata Party.
