In a heartbreaking incident, Pakeezah actor Geeta Kapoor was abandoned in a hospital by her son. According to a Mid-Day report, Geeta's son Raja admitted her to the SRV hospital in Goregaon, Mumbai, last month and fled under the pretext of going to the ATM to withdraw money to pay the deposit. Geeta's Bollywood connection was discovered when reports of her abandonment went viral.
Geeta told the publication that Raja had been planning to abandon her for days. "He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that's why, he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled," she said.
Apparently, Raja left the house they were living in. When the hospital called, he promised to come with the money, but stopped responding to calls and did not turn up. The doctor reportedly called from a different number and he answered, but when he was told to take Geeta home and clear the bill amounting to over Rs 1 lakh, he was a no-show again.
The hospital tried contacting Geeta's daughter Pooja as well, but she hung up claiming that they had the wrong number. They have now approached the police, who are exploring legal options to take action against her son.
