Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was hospitalised on Saturday evening after he complained of breathlessness and uneasiness in the chest.

The medical team attending to the actor at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital has informed that Dutt has tested Covid negative after a rapid antigen test, although he continues to be kept under observation in the intensive care unit (ICU). His condition is said to be stable.

“Just wanted to assure everyone that I’m doing well. I’m currently under medical observation & my COVID-19 report is negative. With the help & care of the doctors, nurses & staff at Lilavati hospital, I should be home in a day or two. Thank you for your well wishes & blessings,” the actor tweeted with an emoji of folded hands, on his official Twitter account, @duttsanjay.

Dutt, who turned 61 on July 29, suffered from low oxygen saturation levels according to a report in indianexpress.com. On arrival at the hospital, he underwent a rapid antigen Covid-19 test and the result was negative. However, the hospital authorities have also collected a swab of the actor for an RT-PCR test.

The actor returns to the screen in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak 2”. The sequel to the 1991 hit, “Sadak”, reunites Dutt with Pooja Bhatt, and also casts Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur in pivotal roles. The film is slated to release digitally on August 28.

Actress-Asha-Negi

Television actress Asha Negi, who announced a few days ago on Instagram that she has decided to take a break from social media, says such steps once in a while help one stay sane.

“Everybody should go on a digital detox once in a while. It keeps you sane. When so much is happening on social media, it becomes important to take a break. Sometimes, we end up doing nothing due to social media as we are busy scrolling all the while. So, it’s important to engage yourself in some productive activities by disconnecting yourself from the virtual world for a while,” Asha told IANS.

This isn’t the first time that Asha has taken a break from social media.

“I went on a digital detox in past, too. I planned to take a break for a week but I enjoyed so much that I came back on social media after almost 20 long days,” the “Pavitra Rishta” fame actress recalled.

Asha is right now seen in the role of a journalist on the web show, “Abhay 2”.

“The show has instilled confidence in me and made me believe that I am not just meant for ‘girl next door’ roles. I felt great to explore a new territory. I will now try to do different kinds of roles in future projects. Initially, I was nervous. I had doubts whether I would be able to the role. But while working I realised nothing is impossible. I worked hard and gave my best,” Asha shared.

Several episodes of the crime thriller “Abhay 2”, which also features Kunal Kemmu and Ram Kapoor, were shot amid the pandemic. Asked how her experience was to shoot amid the new normal, Asha replied: “Honestly, I was paranoid. I was like, ‘bahar nikle aur corona hojaega (if I ventured out, I might contract corona)’. But we followed strict safety precautions and shot successfully. It’s the new normal and we are getting used to it.”

Simone-Khambatta

Fashion designer Simone Khambatta on Thursday deposed before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) while Bollywood actor Rakul Preet Singh is yet to join the investigation into drugs abuse among people associated with the film industry, officials said.

According to NCB officials, Khambatta arrived at the NCB office here for questioning around 10.15 a.m.

An NCB official said that Rakul’s summons were issued on Wednesday but she has not yet responded on any available contact so far.

The NCB has also summoned several Bollywood actors, including Deepika Padukone, Shradhha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan for questioning in a drugs related case.

On Wednesday, besides Deepika, the NCB sent summons to her manager Karishma Prakash for questioning on Friday and Sara and Shradhha for questioning on Saturday.

The NCB registered a case under the NDPS Act on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) probing the money laundering charge into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The official said that it registered case after few alleged chats of Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda discussing drugs came to the fore.

Following the alleged chats, the NCB questioned Rhea, Showik, Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi, talent manager Jaya Saha, Kwan talent management agency CEO Dhruv Chitgopekar, Udta Punjab Producer Madhu Mantena Varna and several others.

Responding to a question on the number of cases the drug law enforcement agency is probing, an NCB official said: “The agency has registered two separate cases under NDPS Act. There are few aspects in both cases which warrant examination of both Sara and Shraddha, so they will be examined in both cases.

The official said that both cases are of NCB and have common link.

The NCB has already arrested Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sushant’s personal staff Dipesh Sawant and 16 others in the case so far.

Rhea, Showik, Miranda and Sawant are currently in judicial custody.

The official said while the alleged chats of Deepika with her manager Prakash discussing drugs in October 2017 has brought her role to the fore, Shradhha and Sara’s role came to the fore following the questioning of Saha.

The NCB is the third Central agency to probe the death of Sushant besides the CBI and the ED.
