Veteran actor Arun Bali has been diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disease and has hence been hospitalized. After a series of tests, it has confirmed that he has Myasthenia Gravis, which is a rare long-term autoimmune disease. The actor has been admitted to the Hiranandani Hospital for further treatment. CINTAA member, Nupur Alankar, had spoken to Bali recently and felt something was off. As a result, she contacted his son, Ankush and requested to take Bali to the hospital just in case. Nupur told ETimes, "I was on call with Arun Bali sir when I sensed something is majorly wrong with his speech and pointed it out to him. After that I tried contacting his son Ankush, but couldn't get through. Then I called up Rajeev Menon who is Ankush's colleague and got his other number and I advised him to take Arun sir to the hospital immediately." Bali’s daughter Itishree too later confirmed about her father’s condition to Nupur saying that he has been suffering from a rare neuromuscular disease called Myasthenia Gravis, which is caused by a breakdown of the nerve-muscle communication.
