Salman Khan‘s co-star from his 1995 release Pooja Dadwal has been suffering from tuberculosis. The worrisome fact that she had no money to take care of herself sent a shock across the nation among cinema lovers. At the ongoing press conference of Da-Bangg The Tour in Pune, Salman Khan was asked about reaching out to Pooja, to which the actor said, “She is not my co-star but Atul’s co-star. It’s very sad… I didn’t know about this. But our team has got in touch with her. She will be okay.”
Speaking to Navbharat Times, Pooja had said, “I learned 6 months ago that I had something as serious as TB. I tried to contact Salman Khan for help, but nothing has been done so far. If he looks at my video then maybe he will try to offer some help. I have been admitted to this hospital for the last 15 days. I have been doing casino management in Goa for the last several years. I have no money at all, I depend on others for even a cup of tea.” She has been admitted to Mumbai’s Shivdi hospital since 15 days now. A source told the daily how her husband and in-laws abandoned her when they got to know about her illness. Her condition is deteriorating by the day. With Salman’s team reaching out to her, we hope she recovers soon.
The Da-Bangg The Tour will be filled with celebrity performances and a showcase of popular Bollywood numbers. Directed and scripted by Sohail Khan Entertainment and JA Events, this event will prove to be a bespoke package of entertainments with live performances by superstars like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhu Deva, Daisy Shah, Guru Randhawa and Maniesh Paul as the host.
