Exclusive! Rahul Roy’s brain stroke: Impaired speech, airlifted from Kargil, needs surgery-an eyewitness account – Times of India
So what exactly transpired? Nishant says, “Rahul was a bit dull on Tuesday initially, and we suddenly observed that he was not able to deliver his dialogues. He was not forgetting them but he was groping for words to complete sentences, he just could not form sentences. Then, around evening,
he started to behave little unusually,
idhar udhar dekhne laga and we strongly sensed that something was wrong.”
Next? “We sent him to a military hospital in Kargil. A CT scan was done on Wednesday morning
to diagnose Rahul’s condition. It was not difficult to decipher the reports in detail as our director is a MBBS director, Mr Nitin Kumar Gupta. He said it is a serious matter. With military’s help he was airlifted in a helicopter to Srinagar on Thursday from where he was rushed to Nanavati’s ICU in Mumbai.”
“It is very sad. I pray he gets well soon. We had flown together from Mumbai. It was a 17-day shoot. We have two more days to go. We should be back by Tuesday,” Nishant added.
Rahul plays a Colonel in ‘LAC- Live The Battle’. The ‘Bigg Boss Season 1′ winner has a role extending to about 6 scenes. As things stand today, Nitin Kumar Gupta should have no problem while editing the film as Rahul had almost finished his entire part by the time the tragedy happened.
