Veteran actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar, popular for essaying several negative characters in Hindi films, was admitted to a hospital in Andheri a week back, after being diagnosed with a lung infection.
On Saturday (October 25) night, there were rumours claiming that he might have passed away. But on Sunday (October 26), his daughter Reema Amrapurkar told HT Café: "My father is stable, and the news that is coming out is all rumours."
That was the latest development at the time of going to press at 4 pm on Sunday (October 26).
Reema, however, tells us that, on Friday (October 24) night, his condition had become critical. "His condition became critical, and on Friday night, he was put on the ventilator. We were prepared for the worst," said Reema.
The 64-year-old actor, who made his debut in 1979, has over 200 films to his credit, including popular ones like Ardh Satya (1983), Sadak (1991), Gupt (1997) and Kachche Dhaage (1999).
