Veteran actor Dharmendra has returned home after being hospitalised for suffering a muscle pull in his back. Dharmendra, who was reportedly shooting for Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, was admitted to Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital.
The actor on Sunday confirmed that he got discharged from the hospital and is currently recovering. He shared a video on Twitter, wherein he informed his fans and followers that he is back home with their “good wishes” and “blessings”. In the clip, Dharmendra revealed that he suffered a “big muscle pull in the back” after which he got hospitalised. “So, don’t worry. I’ll be more careful now,” he added in the clip. He also requested his fans to not pay heed to the rumours surrounding his health.
Earlier in January this year, Dharmendra dropped a video of himself in which he was seen getting the precautionary dose of the Covid-19 vaccines. “Friends, humble request, please take the booster dose,” he wrote. Among others, his daughter Esha Deol commented, “Love you papa.”
On the work front, Dharmendra will be seen in the sequel to the 2007 movie Apne. For the movie, he will reunite him with his sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. The film will also feature his grandson Karan Deol. Apart from this, Dharmendra is also a part of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, shooting for which is currently underway. The film also stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi. It will hit theatres in February 2023.
Earlier, Dharmendra praised his Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani co-stars Alia and Ranveer in an interview with The Times of India. While he called Ranveer ‘adorable’, he tagged Alia as ‘brilliant’. “Ranveer looks so natural in all his films. Bada hi pyaara ladka hai (He is such an adorable boy). Whenever we bump into each other at a function, woh aake mere paas baith jaata hai (he sits beside me). Likewise, Alia is also brilliant at her work,” Dharmendra had said.
