Randhir Kapoor Veteran Bollywood actor and father of Karisma and Kapoor is reported to be shifted to ICU after testing positive for COVID-19.
Randhir Kapoor and five of his staff members had tested positive for COVID-19.
The 74-year-old actor is being treated at Kokilaben hospital in suburban Mumbai.
The actor was shifted to the ICU now at the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital mid-Thursday afternoon.
While talking to a news platform on Friday morning, Kapoor said that “I have been shifted to the Intensive Care Unit to do some further tests.”
“The hospital is taking very good care of me and I thank Tina Ambani. Everything is under control. They are going all out for me. The doctors are around all the time,” he added.
The father of Karisma and Kareena Kapoor Khan also shared that he had received his two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
The veteran Bollywood star has no clue how he contracted coronavirus.
On the other hand, social media in India has been in an uproar for the VVIP treatment he has received. Unlike thousands of people in critical condition, Kapoor was instantly able to get a bed in a local hospital, where many are being denied admission.
When we ppl call big hospitals like Nanavati, lilavati,kokilaben for bed they reply saying no bed but we people see VIP people getting bed very next moment..Do they have bed reserved for VIP people?? If yes crazy n if no don't say me extra bed lagaa ke set kiya😐#RandhirKapoor— Crime Master Gogo (@vipul2777) April 29, 2021

#randhirkapoor is Rich & has multiple houses, where he can set up a care-unit for himself and get a 24*7 nurse (Even doctor).— Nik_Invinci #AgMi 💕Agastya×Rumi💕 (@DrStrangeNik) April 29, 2021
BUT he chooses to use Public resources, which could've been occupied by some other patient in need.
If this isn't misuse of privilege, then what is?
Why isn't his family standing in line ? Why he got hospital bed without fighting for it ? Fuck democracy. This shows misnters are capable of doing much more than they're doing #RandhirKapoor— kushagra Verma (@kushagravrma) April 29, 2021

A man who has already got 2 doses of vaccines is still able to get a bed in a hospital and that too without any discomfort.— Saket (@Saketojha7) April 30, 2021
