Actor Faraaz Khan battling for life in ICU, Pooja Bhatt campaigns to raise funds for his treatment | Hindi Movie News

‘Mehendi’ fame Bollywood actor Faraaz Khan who is also the son of ‘Mahabharat’ actor Yusuf Khan, is currently grappling for life after he was diagnosed with a brain infection. While he is currently in the ICU of a Bangalore hospital, the actor requires Rs.25 Lakhs for his treatment, out of which only Rs. 1.8 lakh has been generated through donations.

To this, actress Pooja Bhatt took to Twitter to campaign for the actor’s treatment and wrote, “Please share and contribute if possible. I am. Would be grateful if any of you can as well.”

The details of the fundraiser, shared by Faraaz’s family members, Farhad Abousher and Ahmed Shamoon read, “Faraaz had been suffering from a cough and an infection in his chest for nearly a year. Recently, the coughing had aggravated so due to the prevailing pandemic, he decided to consult the doctor over a video call. Over the video consultation on 8th October 2020, the doctor saw his condition and recommended that he gets himself admitted to a hospital as his cough was quite intense and to prevent any further infection, hospitalization was the best thing to do. So, immediately we called for an ambulance. However what happened after that has shaken us up to the core.”

It further added, “While the ambulance was on its way, Faraaz suddenly suffered a seizure. He suddenly started shaking uncontrollably and couldn’t control his movements either. As soon as the ambulance arrived, Faraaz was out on a stretcher and was being lowered into the ambulance when he suffered another seizure. As the ambulance was rushing to Vikram Hospital, Banglore, he suffered a third seizure in the ambulance in such a short time span. Faraaz was admitted to the emergency ward of Vikram hospital where we found out that he suffered three consecutive seizures due to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. Besides, while he suffered from these seizures, he swallowed the mucous and saliva of his cough which entered his lungs and caused pneumonia in there. Because of this his blood pressure and heartbeat increased massively and he wasn’t able to breathe. He was put in the ICU care where after a series of complicated procedures and heavy antibiotics he was brought to stability.”
