“Nawaz was rushed to hospital last Wednesday when he complained of uneasiness. Various tests were conducted, but doctors had ruled out dengue and malaria. However, when his fever showed no signs of abating, they ran another round of tests on him and dengue was detected,” reveals a source.

While Nawazuddin remained unavailable for comment, a source close to his family confirms the news and says, “Fortunately, he was hospitalised at the right time and everything is under control. He is undergoing treatment although there is a bit of discomfort. We are praying for his quick recovery.”
