A source said, "The couple boarded a connecting flight from Abu Dhabi to their (undisclosed) holiday destination and while the aircraft was preparing to take off, she experienced a sharp pain in her back. The pain was so severe that paramedics had to be called on board and later, they were deplaned. She was taken to a clinic at the airport for further tests. Her temperature had also shot up."

After taking some medicines, the couple took a flight back to Mumbai and Vidya was immediately rushed to a suburban hospital. "A few tests later, doctors suspected kidney stone. She is now being treated and will be discharged soon,”" added the source.
