Amisha Patel is suffering from a gastro infection

Amisha Patel is suffering from a gastro infection and has been feeling down. Presently, she is undergoing treatment at a suburban hospital.

Incidentally, the same doctors are treating her who treated Amitabh Bachchan when he was admitted two years ago.

Amisha Patel, in her weak state, said, “I was to digest food due to a gastro infection. I went to meet Dr Barve who also treated Mr Bachchan and Saif, who suffer from a similar problem.

Thankfully, my problem is not severe. My family doctor Dr Gadhval advised me to take some treatment by Dr Barve. I had to undergo CT scans and a couple of other tests. Right now, I am being careful and am on a liquid and pure vegetarian diet.

I am feeling weak but on the road to recovery. My condition is not so serious that I need to be admitted to the hospital. The doctors are fantastic.”

Karan Johar is leaving no stone unturned to give his film My Name Is Khan a unique look. He has recreated New York at Film City and now a flood sequence is being shot there. Apparently, Karan has ordered for thousands of litres of water in tankers to depict the flood.

However, being the ever thoughtful producer, he also did not want the unit to fall sick shooting the entire day in waist-high water, so he got designer Shiraj Siddiqui to make special waterproof costumes.

Our source from the sets said, “The entire set will be under water for the next few days. It is going to be a difficult shoot and Karan is tensed about it. This is one of the most important sequences in the film and all precautions are being taken. Many tankers have been called to fill the set with water and Karan is very particular that he wants everything to be right. However, he is also very concerned about the health risks of staying in water for hours. That’s why he has asked his designer friend Shiraz Siddiqui to make special waterproof costumes for himself as well as his entire unit. However, the actors SRK and Kajol will not have the costumes as they have to be seen in their look for the film.”

Karan Johar didn’t want to talk about the scenes to maintain the ambiguity that he has been projecting regarding the film. But he did say that it was a difficult and elaborate scene that he was shooting.
