Former Bollywood actress Geeta Kapoor abandoned by son
Geeta Kapoor was recently admitted by her son Raja due to the falling blood pressure problem in the SRV Hospital in Goregaon
She has films like Pakeezah, Mughal-E-Azam, Razia Sultan and Pyaar Karke Dekho to her credit.
At the hospital, when asked to pay a deposit, her son Raja went out under the pretext of looking for an ATM and then never returned.
Geeta said, she was starving for four days before reaching the hospital. Sources in the hospy say that her son left to withdraw money to pay her bills, never to return! She has been in the hospital for a month.
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit paid her a visit. And he said, “I have seen her films and I could not recognize her because she was in bad shape”.
Hospital sources add that Geeta is depressed and is more of a nervous wreck, scared and has incoherent speech at times. “I’m ready to do everything for her. There are many in the film industry who can help her out. But I will need an NOC from her family to let me complete her treatment and get her a place to stay. It is fine if her son doesn’t want to help her,” says Pandit.
He and Ramesh Taurani have cleared the bills, but await the son to release his mother.
On the other hand Geeta added, Raja (her son) used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that’s why he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled,” said the veteran actress.
