Ace comedian Sunil Grover in a recent interview has opened up about undergoing multiple heart surgeries. For the unversed, in February this year, Sunil was admitted to Asian Heart Institute in Mumbai where he underwent four bypass surgeries. He was diagnosed with a ‘very minor heart episode (NSTEMI) after his heart enzyme (troponin T) level was elevated.’ His condition worsened as Sunil also tested positive for Covid-19. The comedian recalled the time when he was lying in ICU and needed another person’s help to do the basic things.
Speaking to Etimes TV, Sunil talked about the importance of being grateful even for the smallest of things we do in our daily lives. The actor also admitted that he was 'caught up in the routine of work commitments and that he was not grateful enough'. “But I have realised now that gratitude is important. If you can drink water when you want, you are lucky, if you can sit up on your bed by yourself, you are lucky, if you can walk to the bathroom without anyone’s help, you are lucky,” Sunil was quoted as saying.
