Excerpts from the conversation:
Hope you are feeling better…
Yes, three chemotherapy sessions are over. I have yet to undergo three more, though. After that, I have to undergo a surgery. So I will go back home and again get admitted whenever a new session is to be done. But well, my health does keep fluctuating at times.
How did it all begin?
It all started with pain in the abdomen. The pain refused to go despite a lot of medicines. Post that, I underwent some X-rays and a CT scan which revealed my ailment. ‘Ab jo ho gaya hai usko face toh karna padhega.’
Did you watch ‘Bigg Boss 14‘ after Rakhi went inside?
Yes, I watched as much as I could. I was very happy that she was participating but I was very sad that she didn’t win (pauses).
I want Rakhi and her husband Ritesh to go together in ‘Bigg Boss 15’ and participate. I want to see that happen.
You have thanked Salman Khan…
Yes, he has helped me morally.
Who else did you like in ‘Bigg Boss 14’?
I liked Rubina Dilaik quite a bit.
Have you kept a 24-hour nurse/attendant who looks after you?
My daughter Rakhi is looking after me very well. Ditto for my daughter-in-law. At times, Rakhi might have to go for some work assignments but I am sure that she’ll balance doing her shoots and taking care of my health very well; I have full faith in her.
We at ETimes TV pray that you will be alright soon…
Yes, and I have faith in God too.
