Noted actor and Member of Parliament Farooque had been receiving treatment in Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital since March. Farooque had been in the ICU of Mount Elizabeth Hospital for quite some time, back in April.
The news was confirmed by Zayed Khan, the General Secretary of Bangladesh Cholochitro Shilpi Samity. "I just talked to his wife a few minutes ago," says Zayed Khan. "She requested prayers from the people of this country."
Farooque is reportedly out of danger, improving slowly day by day. Even a few days ago, Farooque was unable to move or talk, fortunately, the actor is now talking again.
Last October, Farooque was diagnosed with tuberculosis, commonly known as TB, at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. He returned to Dhaka after his treatment. However, he was asked by his doctors to keep up with his monthly follow-ups.
The renowned actor has been a part of more than 150 films in his illustrious career.
