Saif Ali Khan was admitted to the ICU at Lilavati Hospital on Sunday evening with chest pain and an irregular heartbeat. Khan was supposed to perform at an awards show at Bandra-Kurla Complex but pulled out after feeling uneasy. Hospital sources said he had a mild heart attack, but this could not be confirmed officially.
Saif had just returned from South Africa, where he was shooting for Race.
Ironically, Saif was named as the winner of the best villainous performance for his role in Omkara at the awards show even as he was undergoing tests in hospital.
Bollywood’s concern for the Khan’s health showed as a steady stream of visitors made its way to Lilavati. Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt were among the first to call on him. Later, Preity Zinta and Fardeen Khan showed up too.
Last March, Khan was operated for appendicitis in Kuala Lumpur where he was shooting for a commerce.
