Actor Bhoopati, the son of the late veteran actress Manorama, was recently admitted to hospital due to an overdose of pills.

Bhoopati reportedly has an addiction for alcohol and was believed to be facing withdrawal syndrome as the Indian government imposed a lockdown to contain the deadly Covid-19.

Only shops which sell essential products are allowed to operate during this lockdown and alcohol shops were ordered to close throughout the curfew.

Due to the unavailability of alcohol, Bhoopati has resorted to consuming sleeping pills and was admitted to a private hospital in Chennai.

Besides Bhoopati, there are also several other citizens who are facing withdrawal syndrome due to the unavailability of alcohol and currently undergoing treatment in hospitals.
