Bollywood playback singer Sonu Nigam was recently admitted to Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital following a severe allergy he got after eating seafood. His eyes are swollen up and he is recovering right now. Nigan took to his Instagram to share his couple of pictures showcasing his swollen up face. In the post, one picture shows his close-up shot showing his woollen eyes and the other picture show him lying on the hospital bed with an oxygen mask on his face.

He thanked his fans for showing care and wrote in his post, “Thanks for your concern and love. Now that you know that I am returning back from Jeypore Orissa after managing a concert last night, I now don’t mind sharing how I was the day before yesterday.”

He also wrote that he has learned a lesson. He further writes, “Lesson for all of us, Never ever ever ever take a chance with allergies. Seafood in my case. If Nanavati Hospital wasn’t nearby, my trachea would have swollen up further and lead to asphyxiation. Happy and Healthy life to everyone.” (sic)
