SNS | New Delhi |

Veteran actress Geeta Kapoor, who was abandoned by son at a hospital in Mumbai, is now being shifted to an old-age home.

Central Board of Film Certification member Ashoke Pandit, who paid for Geeta's hospital bills and treatment, has finalised an old-age home for her. 

In a tweet, Pandit shared the news with everyone that the Mumbai Police has given him the No Objection Certificate to shift Geeta to an old-age home.

Last week, a national daily reported that the 58-year-old actress was allegedly abandoned by her son Raja. She also accused him of torturing and starving her.

 "He used to beat me up as I did not approve of his philandering ways. He would give me food once in four days, and sometimes, even lock me up for several days. I was not ready to go to an old-age home, that's why he planned all this. He deliberately kept me hungry and I fell ill. Then, he got me admitted and fled," Geeta told the daily.

Geeta also has a daughter Pooja, who is a Pune-based flight attendant.
