'Pakeezah' actress Geeta Kapoor abandoned in hospital by son. Says he used to beat and torture her.

She once starred in one of the great classics of Indian cinema opposite Meena Kumari and Raaj Kumar, but now life has taken its toll on her.

The golden-era actress of Hindi movies, Geeta Kapoor, who worked in more than 100 films and was best known for her work in Pakeezah has been abandoned by her son at a hospital. Ailing in her old-age, Geeta made some more shocking revelations about the torture born by her in her household.

As reported by Mid-Day, the former actress revealed, speaking of her son, “He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that’s why, he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled,”

After bearing all the torture from her son for as long as she did, Kapoor fell ill with high-blood pressure and was admitted to the SRV Hospital last month. As the hospital bills soared and her son was asked to deposit the sum, he reportedly ventured out of the hospital to withdraw money from an ATM and never really came back.

Although, the hospital failed to contact him despite several attempts, they continued with the treatment, given her failing health conditions. But as more than a month went by, and the hospital bill reached over 1.5 Lakhs, a formal complaint was finally lodged with the local police station by the hospital.

Meanwhile, producers Ramesh Taurani and Ashoke Pandit have stepped forward to her pay Kapoor's medical bills.

Our parents sacrifice their complete lives and their everything for our happiness, abandoning them at old-age is the worst thing one could do. The unimaginably painful condition in which Geeta was abandoned by her children and the kind of travesties she faced while living with her son, are devastatingly sad.
