“After 3 weeks in confinement with a double Covid in 2 weeks accompanied by influenza and deep pneumonia – and post trying several times to leave. Finally landed via air ambulance accompanied by two doctors and superstar super efficient son who did so much for me back in london. The flight was smooth. Unfortunately still on 24/7 external oxygen. Thank u to all at @vistajet for going the extra mile. I am extremely grateful to all. Love to all. Big hug,” he wrote on Instagram.
Sushmita’s brother Rajeev Sen left him a note in the comments section wishing for his speedy recovery. Rajeev shared, “Wishing you a speedy recovery Lalit. Stay strong.” Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh too, among many others, commented on the post, ‘Get well soon’.
Lalit Modi had confirmed his ‘relationship’ with Sushmita last year as he posted a series of pictures on Instagram and called her his “Better looking partner” and said he is looking forward to “new beginnings”. There have also been rumours of their split over changed Instagram bios, but neither of the two have acknowledged the same.
Talking about Sushmita and Lalit being trolled, Rajeev Sen had said to ETimes, “A lot has been said about my sister negatively regarding her current pictures with Mr Modi. I can proudly say that my sister is a self-made woman. She knows her priorities, she is a responsible mother and a role model for many Indians. Nothing can take that away from her. Also, whatever my sister had to say, she has done that through her Instagram posts.”
Modi also introduced the two doctors who closely monitored and treated him in Mexico.
Sharing a picture on Instagram, Lalit Modi wrote, “With my two saviours. The two Drs seriously for 3 weeks monitored me treated. Me 24/7. 1 Mexico City based whose care I was under and the second my London Dr who specifically flew in to Mexico City to accompany me back to London. I have no words to describe of they sacrificed there time etc to get me out. Still need time to recover. Currently on 24/7 external oxygen.”
“I was I thought touch and go. But my children and thief friends and my close friend @harish_salve_ who were all with me 2 out of my three weeks fully by my side. They are all my family and part of me. God bless. Jai hind. Not to forget the @vistajet crew. Who were better then par excellence. Thank u my friend @thomasflohrvista,” he added.
