Malayalam actor-director Sreenivasan, who has been admitted at Ernakulamâ€™s Medical Centre since Wednesday, is showing improvement in health. He was hospitalised after he complained of respiratory problems.
As per latest reports, he has been taken off the ventilator. The News Minute has quoted the hospitalâ€™s PRO Radhakrishnan saying, â€œThe condition is much better today and it is expected that he will be moved from the ICU to a room in 24 hours.â€
After doing a thorough follow up on the situation and the actor's health, our local source reported: "There was not much complication as projected in the media. He (Sreenivasan) was working on a busy schedule and was doing two- three films at a time."
"Munnar in Idukki district was very cold. He was shooting there and went without any appropriate clothes for the weather. He had a chest infection that resulted in breathing problems. There was ventilator, but he was not put on ventilator support. Today he is okay. He has a breathing mask now and will be taken to his residence by tomorrow, " the reporter added.
