Stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma has been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai due to high blood pressure.
According to a report filed by The Times Of India, Kapil was immediately rushed to a hospital after he complained of uneasiness during the shooting of his new episode with Paresh Rawal for his upcoming film Guest Iin London.
His co-star Kiku Sharda confirmed the news to the tabloid saying that “Yes, Kapil was feeling uneasy so he was taken to the hospital and was admitted. But there’s nothing to worry. He is fine now.”
The 36-year-old comedian was to be honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award today in the evening. But now, his presence looks a bit difficult and this would be the second time he would miss it.
A report by the DNA suggests that Kapil, who was chosen for the honour in 2014, had to collect the award from a stage co-ordinator as he turned up late for the event.
Besides him, actress Priyanka Chopra, Juhi Chawla, music-director duo Anand-Milind and ‘Dangal’ director Nitesh Tiwari are among other awardees this year.
Please note: This award function has nothing to do with the illustrious Dada Saheb Phalke Award which is one of the highest recognition for an artist from the Indian film industry.
