Sreenivasan, 62, a well-known name in the Malayalam film industry, has been admitted to a hospital after encountering respiratory problems. He was taken to Ernakulam’s Medical Center Hospital on Wednesday.
The News Minute has quoted the duty doctor Gautham Chandran saying, "He showed symptoms of a small heart failure, with water filling the lungs and high BP. We have given medicines to bring down the BP and moved him to ventilator support. There's a small improvement but as long as he's on ventilator support, we need to monitor him carefully. For at least 24 hours. We are waiting for more details. We have briefed his immediate relatives."
