Veteran actor Geeta Kapoor was abandoned by her son at a Mumbai hospital. She has now been shifted to an old age home. The actor had run up bills amounting to lakhs but her son just vanished after admitting her at the hospital. Filmmakers Ramesh Taurani and Ashoke Pandit came and paid the hospital bills to her help.
Ashoke Pandit told, “We just now shifted Geetaji to Jeevan Asha Old Age home in Andheri. She is stable, but still cries every now and then and enquires about her son. She keeps on asking how Raja left her in the hospital like this, she is inconsolable. However, we have managed to settle her. The old age home is good, she will be taken care of properly, there is a hospital within the old age home in case of an emergency.”
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit is member of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Geeta Kapoor has acted in films such as Pakeezah and Razia Sultan. A police case was register against Geeta Kapoor’s son. He even refused to show up to give an NOC that was needed to shift Geeta Kapoor to the old age home.
Yesterday Ashoke Pandit tweeted thanking the Mumbai Police for issuing an NOC to shift Geeta Kapoor to an old age home. His tweet said” “Thank U @DevenBhartiIPS ji @MumbaiPolice for standing by us and agreeing to give an NOC to shift actress #GeetaKapoor to an old age home.”
Ashoke also expressed anger and surprise that Geeta Kapoor’s son never showed up to complete any formalities regarding his mother.
