Source: AsiaoneMidget actor Mohd Razhid, known for his comic roles in films such as Tuan Badul, Panglima Badul and Hong Kong-produced flick Angle Two, has been bedridden for close to six months, Metro Ahad reported.He has been warded at the Selama Hospital in Perak following an infection in his buttocks due to a failed "hot stone" treatment (tungku). Doctors had to remove a piece of flesh from his buttocks.Relating his plight to the paper, the 50-year-old actor, better known as Radi Pendek, said it all started from his frequent long-distance motorcycle rides between Kuala Lumpur, Selama and Penang."From the long rides, my body often felt numb and it became difficult to move my hands. Eventually, I sought the tungku treatment."However, instead of getting better, my buttocks started to swell," he said, adding that besides not being able to act, he also had to close his small business that dealt in the sales and repair of handphones.He now lives on welfare aid from the Perak Baitumal fund and the state welfare department, which each gives him RM300(S$120) a month.
