From the past few days, Bollywood filmmaker Nishikant Kamat is undergoing hospitalisation over severe health issues. He was diagnosed with jaundice and abdominal distention sometime during the end of July. A source close to the Kamat had exclusively revealed to SpotboyE that he suffered from Liver Cirrhosis in the past and it has escalated now. His health, over the past few days, has only deteriorated and earlier today, the news reports of his demise came floating across the internet. However, a couple of celebrities came forth to rubbish it. Now, the hospital wherein Nishikant is admitted, too, has issued a statement over his current health status.
The statement reveals that Nishikant Kamat is in a critical condition and continues to stay on life support. "Mr Nishikant Kamat is currently on ventilator support and continuous to be in critical condition," read the note that was dated August 17. Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh and filmmaker Milap Zaveri, too, had confirmed a similar piece of news sometime back. Riteish wrote, "Nishikant Kamat is on ventilator support. He is still alive & fighting. Let’s pray for him," while Milap had tweeted, "Just spoke to someone who is with Nishikant in the hospital right now. He hasn’t passed away yet. Yes he is v critical and fighting life and death. But he is still alive."
The earlier statement released by the hospital read, "Mr Nishikant Kamat (50 years, Male) was brought to AIG Hospitals, Gachibowli, Hyderabad on 31st July with jaundice and abdominal distention. He has been diagnosed with Chronic Liver Disease and other secondary infections. He is in the intensive care unit for continuous monitoring under supervision of a multi- disciplinary team of senior consultants comprising of Gastroenterologists, Hepatologists, Critical Care and others. His condition is critical but stable. We wish him a speedy recovery.”
