Veteran film star Kabori was shifted to a different hospital after failing to find any empty ICU beds at Kurmitola General Hospital where she was admitted on April 5
Legendary actress and producer Sarah Begum Kabori, well known as Kabori Sarwar, has been shifted to intensive care at Sheikh Russel National Gastroliver Institute & Hospital where she is undergoing treatment for Covid-19 after her health condition had worsened.
She was previously being treated at Kurmitola General Hospital after she had tested positive for Covid-19.
Her personal assistant Nur Uddin confirmed the matter to the media on Thursday, reports Bangla Tribune.
“Madam [Kabori] has been shifted to the ICU of a different hospital as we couldn’t find any empty ICU beds at Kurmitola. Her health is deteriorating and we are urging everyone to pray for her swift recovery” he said.
The two-time National Film Award winner, who bagged the first for her role in Sareng Bou in 1978 and later claimed the Life time Achievement award in 2013, was admitted to the hospital on Monday night, April 5.
Kabori made her big screen debut when she was only 13 years old, and garnered immense popularity for her portrayals. She has paired up with the biggest names of the Bangladeshi film industry including Razzak, Farooque, Bulbul Ahmed, Alamgir, Sohel Rana and Ujjal.
From participating in the country’s Liberation War and appearing in a broadcast of Radio India during the war to engaging in political activities in her later years, Kabori’s life and achievements, both in her private and professional life, are bound to intrigue many fans and readers.
Kabori, also a former lawmaker from Narayanganj, started shooting for her new film “Ei Tumi Sei Tumi” in March last year, which is yet to end due to the ongoing pandemic.
