Veteran actor Mumtaz discharged from hospital, reveals her ‘Iranian skin’ gave doctors trouble

Veteran actor Mumtaz has now been discharged from the Breach Candy Hospital. She was hospitalized for diarrhea and took seven days to get better. She has now disclosed that since she ws on drip for an entire week, she encountered trouble as she could not be injected in her left hand due to lack of lymph nodes which were removed during treatment for breast cancer long ago.

Mumtaz actually hails from Iran and has featured in several successful movies like Brahmachari (1968), Ram Aur Shyam (1967), Aadmi Aur Insaan (1969) and Khilona (1970).

Talking about her health, Mumtaz tood to ETimes, “I suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Colitis both. It was a sudden attack of diarrhea which did not stop despite the best of medication. Hence, hospitalisation was required. In the hospital too, it took me seven days to normalise.”

Mumtaz disclosed her husband Mayur Madhwani was in the US at the time and insisted to come over but she told him that she will handle it. She further disclosed an issue that she had to face in the hospital. She conveyed, “My skin was giving me a lot of trouble. Being an Iranian, my skin is very delicate. I was on drip for an entire week in the hospital. The injection of the drip could only be inserted in my right hand; my left hand could not be used because my lymph nodes were removed when I had contracted breast cancer 25 years ago.”

During her time in Mumbai, Mumtaz sometimes meets her industry colleagues. She had a get-together with Shatrughan Sinha in November last year and joined Anju Mahendroo in March this year. She had given an awe to Shatrughan Sinha and family at their home.
