Actor Paresh Rawal has recently opened up about the darkest time when his mother was in a coma for 12 days.

Paresh while reflecting back on his mother’s accident, revealed his friend who was a doctor by profession treated her and he told him by waiting, he was not “extending her life, instead was prolonging her death.” The Hera Pheri actor was quoted saying, “When my mother fell down, she was in a coma for 12 days. The doctor who treated her was a good friend. I asked him what we should do. He told me, ‘Paresh, she’s on life support. Even if she wakes up, she will not recognise anybody. She’s old, she might not survive the surgery. Her brain has been injured. By waiting, you’re not extending her life, you’re prolonging her death. Pull the plug. This is practical, these are the facts.” ALSO READ: Paresh Rawal CONFIRMS Karthik Aaryan’s Presence In Hera Pheri 3; Netizens Left Devastated, Share Hillarious Memes- Check It Out
