Mumbai: After suffering a heart attack, iconic Indian choreographer-cum-filmmaker Remo D’Souza is presently resting at his home. He thanked and appreciated Salman Khan for supporting his family. He talked about the day how the diagnosis came as a big shock to him. He said that he started feeling unwell when he hit the gym. He cancelled the session and decided to return home with his wife.
“I took the elevator to go up, I pressed the lift button and sat down. Once I stepped out of the lift I started coughing and I even wanted to throw up. Lizelle saw my smartwatch, which checks on the heartbeat and ECG and the screen prompted ‘Are you not well?’ This pain was something that I had never experienced in my life. On reaching the hospital, we were told by the doctors that it’s a major heart attack,” Remo said in an interview.
In an interview with The Times of India, he said, “Usually, a normal human heart works at 55% and when I was taken to the hospital, it was working only 25%. Yeh mere saath kaise ho gaya (How did this happen to me)? I keep a check on my body from time to time. It is probably hereditary, pre-workout session or work stress.”
He also said that Salman Khan came to the support of the family at that time. “We call him an angel as he has a heart of gold. I have worked with him and I know the kind of a gem that he is. Salman and I don’t talk much, like, I only say ‘yes, sir, okay sir’. Actually, my wife and Salman are very close. As soon as I was rushed to the hospital, Lizelle called him. And through the six days that I was in the hospital, he saw to it that I was taken good care of. He was also personally talking to the doctors,” the choreographer added.
Earlier, Lizelle D’Souza too thanked Bollywood’s Bhaijaan for the “emotional support” when Remo needed it the most. Remo and Salman had earlier worked together in Race 3.
