As her haemoglobin count continues to plummet, Katrina’s health is causing distress to all those who know her

As her hemoglobin count continues to plummet, Katrina’s health is causing distress to all those who know her.

Everyone around Katrina, well-wishers, co-stars, friends and family are beginning to be extremely worried about Katrina’s deteriorating health. On Sunday she was again at a suburban hospital to take further tests as her haemoglobin count continued to fall, despite treatment from the best doctors in the city.

Though Katrina has been extremely selective recently about the appearances she makes, she is obviously still straining too much and it is affecting her adversely.

On Sunday Katrina woke up unable to get out of bed.  The  worst  blow to her  frail energy level  was  the hectic  wedding of  Salman Khan’s close family-friend Krishan Narayan’s  daughter which Katrina attended for two consecutive nights on Friday and Saturday for the sangeet  and wedding.

Forgetting her delicate health, Katrina had simply let herself go, dancing and having a good time.

A friend explained, “It was a commitment she couldn’t wriggle out of. The bride’s father, an associate of politician Praful Patel, is a very close friend of Salman Khan. And Katrina who has always looked at Salman’s friends as her own, had to be there.”

The result of two consecutive nights of merry-making was a relapse. On Sunday Katrina had to undergo a series of complicated medical tests that went on the whole day

The friend continued, “Katrina’s haemoglobin count continues to plummet. The doctors are perplexed by this. They can’t figure out what is causing this abnormality in her blood. She has been prescribed complete bed rest.”

When contacted, Katrina tried to dismiss her indisposition with. “I will be just fine. I just need to rest.”

We’re announcing the Shilpa Shetty-Raj Kundra wedding… but not giving out the invites .

It’s on November 22, at Shilpa’s friend and business partner Kiran Bawa’s bungalow in Khandala, a quiet and private affair preceded by sangeet and mehendi at which the guest list would be restricted to just close friends and family. But, whether family will include sister and bridesmaid Shamita Shetty is not known.

The Shetty sibling is locked up in the Big Boss house with other not-so-famous and out-of-work characters and is unaware of the developments in her sister’s life. Shilpa, who hosted the same reality show in an earlier season, is naturally keen to get Shamita out for the wedding. But the question arises whether the producers will allow Shamita to attend the wedding and get back to the house… or whether Shamita will deviously engineer her ouster and, after the wedding, seek re-entry on a wild card.

Meanwhile, more on the wedding: The sangeet and mehendi will be Punjabi style and the saat pheras, South Indian. And Bollywood’s bold and beautiful need not slyly ask each other, “Aati kya Khandala?” because Shilpa’s not inviting anybody from the industry over. For them, there is going to be a lavish reception in Mumbai on November 24. Gatecrashers beware!
