Naseeruddin Shah's Health Update: Veteran Actor Speaks From The Hospital, Says He’s "Likely To Be Discharged On Sunday" - EXCLUSIVE
Setting aside all speculation on his discharge today, the ailing  super-actor Naseeruddin Shah speaks to us from the hospital, says it would be a couple of days before he leaves the hospital. When I asked if he would be discharged from hospital today as per some reports, Naseer Saab replied, “By Sunday I’m hoping(to be  discharged. Touched by your concern.” The actor par excellence whom  many of us consider the  finest talent  of Hindi cinema  was last seen  in  Baba Azmi’s directorial debut Mir Raqsam in 2020.  He has  not signed  anything else since then.  ALSO READ: Naseeruddin Shah Hospitalised: Wife Ratna Pathak Shah Says, 'It's A Small Pneumonia Patch, He Will Be Out Soon'- EXCLUSIVE

 In an  interview  with me  last year Naseer Saab had  told me he’s using the time  at home  during the pandemic to  learn  more  Urdu. “I've been brushing up on my Urdu reading and am thanking my stars that my father made me learn the Arabic alphabet as a child. My ability to read Urdu is fast improving, but writing it is another ball game so I'm not trying that-as it is I sometimes cannot read my own handwriting in English! AND I've been helping around the house, in the kitchen as well, which is something I should have been doing earlier anyway.I never knew what a stressbuster cooking can be! Then I'm reading a lot of Faiz Ahmed Faiz's poetry and about his life with a view to mounting something on stage about him in the future ,if there is a future!. AND I've been educating myself on those Shakespeare plays I know nothing about-and there are plenty!”  ALSO READ: Naseeruddin Shah Is Recovering From Pneumonia; Actor To Be Discharged On Friday — Reports
