Mumbai: Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan was admitted to a hospital late in the night on 18 February 2007 following chest pain and his condition is stable.
Khan has undergone an angiography, Narendra Trivedi, Vice President of Leelavati Hospital in suburban Bandra, said.
He said the actor is likely to be discharged within the next two days.
Saif Ali Khan, son of yesteryear cricketer Mansur Ali Khan and actress Sharmila Tagore, complained of chest pain just before the Star Dust award function was to begin, sources said.
He was then admitted to Leelavati Hospital, they added.
Saif’s sister Soha Ali Khan said her brother was fine and was resting presently.
“All the tests have been clear and an angiography has been done. He had some chest pain and admitted himself to the hospital to make sure that everything was fine.”
Khan, who was adjudged for the Star Dust award for the best negative role in “Omkara”, was rehearsing for his dance performance at the award-giving function when he complained of chest pain.
Stardust Editor Sonali Zafar said Khan said Saif suddenly felt his heart beats were irregular and he was rushed to hospital.
As news of Khan getting admitted to hospital spread, a number of Bollywood stars, including Director of hit-movie Parineeta (in which Saif acts) Pradeep Sarkar, Directors Sudhir Mishra, Ken Ghosh and J P Datta, actress Preity Zinta and actors Fardeen Khan and John Abraham reached the hospital.
