Sarkar was recently diagnosed with dengue and was hospitalised.”While in the hospital he came out to direct a scene with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan to complete the shooting schedule of ‘Helicopter Eela’. Special care was taken with an ambulance and a doctor on standby on the set. He had an IV drip on his hand and after completing the shoot he went back to the hospital to continue with his treatment,” according to the official spokesperson of the film.
But producer and actor Ajay Devgn did not want to continue the post of the film without Sarkar.”The makers will wait for Sarkar to come out of the hospital and be fit enough to resume work. Ajay Devgn along with Producer Jayantilal Gada decided to shift the release date to October 12, which was earlier scheduled for September 14″ read the statement.
“Eela” will see Kajol playing a single mother and an aspiring singer. It also stars National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen, who will be playing Kajol’s son.
