Chennai: City-based Apollo Hospitals today announced the successful separation of a pair of conjoined twins from Tanzania in a surgery that took a marathon 11 hours and required the expertise of around 50 professionals.
Seldom does an actress in Bollywood take the plunge to break away from the stereotype roles. If reports stand true then bong beauty Bipasha Basu might soon be seen doing something similar. Well, according to a daily, Bipasha will play the character of conjoined twins in `Alone`.
In a rarest of rare surgeries, medical surgeons at the Apollo Specialty Hospital in Chennai separated nine-month-old conjoined Tanzanian twins, Saba and Farah on December 16 after an 18-hour-long surgery.
Seventeen-year-old conjoined twins Saba and Farah welcomed the Supreme Court ruling on Wednesday that did away with the option of a surgery to separate them and directed the state government to grant the family Rs.5,000 per month.
