Talk Show Host Shekhar Suman Plans to set up Heart Hospital in Patna

After filmmaker Prakash Jha and Bollywood actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha, now popular talk show host Shekhar Suman has come up with a proposal to invest in his home state - Bihar.

Suman has proposed to set up a cardiac hospital in his hometown here in memory of his son Ayush who died of a heart ailment many years ago.

According to him, the chief minister said that the state government would provide the land and other infrastructure needed for the hospital.

Suman, who spent his childhood and youth in Patna, said the proposed hospital would be ultra-modern.

He said he could not forget the pain of the death of his minor son, who died of a heart ailment when he was struggling to establish himself in Mumbai.

He said he would visit Patna regularly now and was proud to be born in Bihar and of his Bihari roots. "It is an emotional matter - a matter of the heart," he said.

His father resides in a middle class locality in Patna.

Suman is known for his comic takes on Bihar politicians, particularly Railway Minister Lalu Prasad.
