Veteran actor and wrestler Dara Singh, who had been at the hospital since Saturday, passed away on Thursday morning at his Mumbai home. The actor, who was on dialysis, was brought home on Wednesday night, as his family wanted him to breathe his last at home.
Earlier, the actor was tagged 'brain dead' by the doctor's due to the significant damage to his brain. Though prayers went out from every nook and corner of the country and overseas, wishing for the lion-bodied actor’s recovery, the doctor's couldn't save him.
Fans had been constantly queuing up, everyday, in huge numbers outside the Kokilaben Hospital, where the actor was admitted till Wednesday, to know about any recent development concerning their idol. Many friends from the industry, namely Dharmendra, Farah Khan, Raza Murad, et al, had also visited the deteriorating actor praying for his well-being.
Though he's not around with us anymore, we only wish that our very own ‘Rustam-e-Hind’ rests in peace!
