Lalit Pandit, whose sister and former actress Vijeta Pandit is married to Aadesh informed, “The doctors have turned down surgery as blood palates are low. Also the latest technology based injections that were brought from America have not worked much on him.”
He lamented, “His condition is gradually declining from worse to worst. Though he recognizes everybody but he is not been able to get up from the bed. The last 12 days have been very painful for him. He could walk and talk earlier but now he is completely bed ridden.”
