Veteran actor Shammi Kapoor has been hospitalised following a chest infection, hospital sources said.
The 78-year old actor was admitted to the Breach Candy hospital here last week, the sources said.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited the actor yesterday. "Seeing him confined to a bed has been disturbing, but his spirit and his will has been one that requires no words to express his nonchalant reserved demeanour."
"Shammi Kapoor, who sang and who danced his way into our hearts from the snows of Kashmir to the endless soirees he held at his apartment in town. Sad to see him like this, but how wonderful to find his spirits alive and his humour intact," Bachchan wrote on his blog.
