Salman ensured that the veteran actor received medical help immediately when the latter had a health scare in the US.
Anupam Kher had a health scare in New York while attending an awards function earlier this month. There were reports of the actor having suffered a heart attack.
Anupam talks about what really happened, “Firstly, it was not a heart-related ailment, meaning a heart attack as the blind item in a tabloid implied. Why so coy about it? I’ve nothing to hide. We were all together in Salman Khan’s room in New York when I had a blackout. I had not eaten anything for one-and-a-half days — big mistake — and my sugar-level had gone down dangerously.”
Salman, who was with Anupam at the time, panicked. “He called the paramedics, who rushed in immediately. The laws in the US about medical emergencies during international events are very strict. No one can take them lightly. I told the paramedics that I was okay, and didn’t need any further treatment. But they insisted on a full medical investigation.”
Anupam went through every possible test and was declared to be in perfect health. The actor says that Salman was a big help at the time of the health scare. “He not only called for medical help, but he also remained on alert all through. I am blessed to have friends like him in the film industry.”
