Shatrughan Sinha admitted to hospital due to fever

    Mumbai, Jun 30 (PTI) Veteran actor and TMC MP Shatrughan Sinha was admitted to a private hospital here after he developed a "strong fever", said his son Luv Sinha on Sunday.
    The 77-year-old -- popular for '70s and '80s films such as "Mere Apne", "Kalicharan", "Vishwanath", "Kaala Patthar" and "Dostana" -- is also undergoing an annual check-up at the medical facility, he added.
    It couldn't be confirmed immediately when Sinha was taken to the hospital.
    "My father had a strong fever and we decided to take him to the hospital so that he could recover and we could have his yearly tests done as well," Luv told PTI in a WhatsApp message.
    It has been quite an eventful month for Sinha, who emerged victorious from West Bengal's Asansol constituency for his party TMC in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, followed by the much-talked-about wedding of his actor-daughter Sonakshi Sinha to longtime partner and "Double XL" co-star Zaheer Iqbal on June 23.
    There were reports that Sinha had undergone a minor surgery but Luv denied such claims.
    "I have been going there (to the hospital) every day, so (I) can tell you that there was no surgical procedure," he said.
    Newlyweds Sonakshi and Zaheer were spotted exiting the hospital on Friday.
    Earlier in the day, Luv criticised a website for allegedly running an "online campaign" against him on a "false premise" about why he didn't attend his sister's wedding.
    "Why I chose not to attend. Running an online campaign against me on a false premise won’t change the fact that for me my family will always come first (sic)" he wrote on X.
    While Luv previously asked for some time to respond to questions of his absence from the ceremony, his twin Kussh had denied reports that he skipped the wedding.
