Mumbai: Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has been admitted at a city-based hospital for a suspected kidney stone. "Vidya is currently in expert hands at Hinduja Hospital and is well on her way to recovery," Vidya's spokesperson said in a statement here on Wednesday.
She was admitted to the hospital by her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur yesterday after the actress suffered from shooting pain in her back while on board a connecting flight from Abu Dhabi to their destination when the aircraft was taxiing to take off, the statement said.
The couple had planned to ring in New Year and Vidya's birthday that is on January 1 at an undisclosed location abroad. The pain was severe that paramedics were called onboard and Vidya and Siddharth were deplaned.
She was taken to a clinic at the airport for examination, it said. "Vidya's temperature had suddenly shot up for which she was treated. Soon after, they took a flight back to Mumbai.
Upon return, Siddharth got her admitted to the Khar Hinduja Hospital. A few tests later, it seems like it could be a kidney stone," the statement added.
