Mumbai, Oct 10 (IANS) Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh's close friend and colleague Gulzar says he is fine after Singh was admitted to Bombay Hospital Monday complaining of weakness and headache.
'Jagjit's blood pressure fell really low. It could've been a stroke. But a friend who works at Bombay Hospital took care of everything. Jagjit will soon be fine. But he needs to stop working so hard,' Gulzar, who has been keeping a close vigil on Singh's health, told IANS.
According to Gulzar, the best way to dodge thoughts of mortality is laughing at death.
'I sent him a message this morning saying, 'Please don't listen to ghazals like Bahadur Shah Zafar's 'Lagta nahin dil mera', listen to numbers like 'Beedi jalay le' and you'll be fine.'
Gulzar and Singh have made two albums together - 'Marasim' and 'Koi Baat Chale'.
