Putting all apprehensions to rest, sources close to Bollywood actor Kader Khan have confirmed that “everything is fine”. Reports on Tuesday claimed that Khan was rushed to Canada to seek medical help for a knee surgery gone wrong.
“He (Kader Khan) has been in Canada since three to four months. He is alright. He is in Canada because his elder son stays there, so he is with him,” director Fauzia Arshi told IANS over phone.
Asked if he is facing any serious medical issues, Arshi said: “There’s nothing like was he rushed to Canada or anything of that nature. Everything is fine.”
Arshi had directed Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi, the movie in which Kader Khan was last seen acting.
The clarification comes after a digital platform quoted actor Shakti Kapoor as saying that Khan is now wheelchair bound and that he has been trying to reach the senior actor since the past few days, but in vain.
Due to age-related problems, the actor finds it difficult to walk and speak, and is under constant medical care.
