Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh has been airlifted to Chennai as he is in a critical condition. According to reports, the 67-year-old father of B-town actor Riteish, has cirrhosis of the liver and both his kidneys have stopped functioning.
Doctors are trying to stabilise his condition so that they can do a liver transplant. Vilasrao’s illness had been diagnosed a year ago and there had been considerable improvement but recently, his health took a turn for the worse. Riteish has reportedly stated that he will donate a part of his liver (as is required in such cases). However, tests are yet to be conducted to determine if it will be a match.
