Female actor Geeta Kapoor, who has worked in films such as Pakeezah and Razia Sultan, has been abandoned by her children after her son got her admitted to a hospital.
Speaking to the sources, Geeta Kapoor said:
“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.”
The actress has been in hospital for more than a month now and the bill has reached over Rs 1.5 lakh, but there is no information about the actress’ son, Raja Kapoor. However, Ashok Pandit and Ramesh Taurani cleared her hospital bills.
Reports suggest that the hospital has lodged a complaint with the police, who are now trying to trace Geeta’s family.
“We were ready to send her home, but the son refuses to turn up. We had no option but to inform the police,” said Dr Tripathi.
