When I call to convey my regards his man-Friday answers Dharamji’s cellphone .
The ageless superstar immediately calls back to reassure me he’s fine.
“Yes, I am back home now.And feeling much better. It was really not as bad as it was being made out to be.It’s just that my family loves me much. The minute I get a little unwell they get all worried. I am more concerned about their being worried about my health than about my health,” says Dharamji with a shy laugh.
So, what happened?
“I think it was something I ate on a flight from Delhi to Jaipur. It didn’t agree with me. I have to be careful about what I eat. And I usually am. The love and concern of my well-wishers always protects me from harm.So it was this time too.I am overwhelmed by the good wishes and the concern for my health. I want to let my well-wishers know I am fine now and I don’t intend to go anywhere for a long time, ” says the actor who turned 81 last week.
