Idris Elba Hospitalized!

Idris Elba,41, was supposed to attend a press conference for his new movie Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom but was rather rushed to the hospital in Uk. Idris, suffered an asthma attack on a plane bound for South Africa but he was taken off the craft before it took off.
The film producer Anant Singh disclosed this to reporters at the red carpet event on Sunday. Idris Elba, who previously spoke about getting into the character for the movie revealed that he spent a night on Robben Island and locked in a cell next to the one where Mandela was jailed for 18 years. Idris travelled around South Africa  researching the role for 3 months before filming started. He initially wrote to authorities in Robben Island for their permission to allow him stay in the jail and they accepted after initially turning him down. Robben Island is now a Heritage center. The producers however hope he'll recover in time for planned red carpet appearance on Sunday. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
