Veteran Bollywood actor Kader Khan's health has deteriorated. The 79-year-old actor, who is now on a wheelchair, has been reportedly rushed to Canada for medical treatment after his knee surgery went wrong.

Actor Shakti Kapoor, who has worked with Kader Khan in several films, told Spotboye that the legendary actor's heath condition has worsened and that he has been rushed to Canada for treatment.

"Yes, Kader Khan is now on a wheelchair. It's so so sad to be talking about this and I am trying to reach him since the past few days, but I am not able to get his number. I hope to have it in the next 2-3 days," Shakti Kapoor told the website.

Shakti Kapoor added, "Kader Khan had a knee problem. He got operated but the operation went wrong."

He also told the entertainment portal, "Kader Khan's elder son resides in Canada. So, he has gone there to avail medical facilities which can cure him. I think his wife is accompanying him."

However, a source close to the veteran writer and actor's family told IANS 'everything' is fine with him.

"He (Kader Khan) has been in Canada since three to four months. He is alright. He is in Canada because his elder son stays there, so he is with him," director Fauzia Arshi told IANS over phone.

Asked if he is facing any serious medical issues, Arshi said: "There's nothing like was he rushed to Canada or anything of that nature. Everything is fine."

Arshi had directed 'Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi', the movie in which Kader Khan was last seen acting.

Kader Khan is widely known for regaling the audience with his comic side in films like 'Himmatwala', 'Aankhen' and 'Coolie No.1', among several other entertainers. Khan, due to age-related problems, finds it difficult to walk and speak, and is under constant medical care.

Last year, there were hoax reports about Khan's death.
