She even added that “My grandfather took an early retirement because while playing polo, he fell from the horse and his foot was stuck in the hook (meant for the foot while sitting on the saddle). The horse dragged him and he had some head injury. He was unconscious for few days. His hands became shaky after this accident. So he left the job because a doctor’s hands should always be steady.” Also Read: Did You Know These Facts About The 2011 Film 'Chatur Singh Two Star'?
