He had got an infection in his kidney due to which he was admitted to Hinduja hospital and he was treated for almost one and a half months. He was quoted as saying, “He has been keeping unwell for the last six months now. He has an infection in his kidney due to which we had admitted him to Hinduja Hospital back then and got him treated for almost one and a half month. That time his health got fine but he has suggested dialysis, from time to time. But he decided to go for ayurvedic treatment as dialysis costs a lot. That didn’t help. He got breathless recently because of not doing dialysis. His chest was filled with water, so we again started his dialysis and he started getting relief.
