Get well soon, sir
Sanjay Dutt, who is in London, was shocked to hear Amitabh Bachchan hospitalisation, he has been calling up son Abhishek Bachchan every hour to check on his father’s health. Sanjay, who is currently in London, also called up his friends Bunty Walia and Dharam Oberoi to check if all was well and offered to fly back to Mumbai immediately. Dutt is waiting for Manyata to join him in London where the couple plans to travel to New Zealand to scout for locations for their home-production, to be directed by Soham Shah.
When contacted, Dharam Oberoi (CEO, Sanjay Dutt Productions) confirmed Sanjay’s frequent calls to Abhishek. “Yes, Baba has been calling up Abhishek every hour. Baba and Bachchan saab go back a long way. He is in awe of Bachchan saab and Bachchan saab too loves him very much.”
Oberoi added, “Baba has also been calling up Bunty. Walia met Bachchan saab in the hospital and he conveyed Sanju’s concern and best wishes to him.”
Meanwhile, Sanjay has zeroed down on Amitabh to play a pivotal role in Soham’s venture. He had even called up AB’s secretary, Rosie and sought an appointment with Bachchan, but the latter was out on The Unforgettable tour. Oberoi confirmed, “That’s right. Baba wants Bachchan saab in the film. It’s a film on sports, titled India. It will go on the floors next year.”
Amitabh was admitted to Lilavati hospital on Saturday morning (on his 66th birthday) when he complained of acute abdominal pain.
