According to the People magazine, the 26-year-old former Disney star was hospitalised twice within the last few weeks, both times for a low white blood cell count, which can be a side effect for kidney transplant patients.

"She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point. She realised she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She's surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She's doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast," a source said.

Pakistan Film Producers Association Calls for Ban on Indian Films

The Pakistan Film Producers Association (PFPA) has demanded a complete ban on the release of Indian films in the country.

Chaudhry Ejaz Kamran, a senior official in the PFPA, said when Pakistani films are not screened in India, why should they screen Indian films here.

"We have to think seriously about this because true our distributors and exhibitors make money from screening Indian films but in the long run it is hurting the growth of our industry," Kamran told PTI .

The demand for a complete ban on release of Indian films comes at a time when in recent months a number of Indian films have been barred from screening in Pakistani cinema houses due to different reasons.

The films banned from release in Pakistan include "Padman", "Veere Di Wedding", "Mulk" and "Raazi", among others.
