Injured Malayalam comedian’s health improvesMarch 11th, 2012 - 12:37 pm ICT by IANS
Kozhikode (Kerala) March 11 (IANS) The condition of Malayalam film comedian Jagathy Sreekumar, grievously injured in a road accident Saturday, has shown slight improvement though he continues to be on ventilator, doctors attending on him said Sunday.
According to the bulletin, Jagathy’s blood pressure was normal and despite the serious injuries, the functioning of his vital organs made a slight improvement.
He will remain on the ventilator, the statement added.
Jagathy was seriously hurt in a road accident in the wee hours of Saturday. A surgery was done on the actor’s stomach to stop internal bleeding.
According to doctors, since he suffered multiple injuries, more surgical interventions will be needed.
“He requires a few more surgeries as he has got multiple injuries. The team of doctors will decide about the other surgeries,” said a doctor.
Hearing news of the accident, numerous film personalities arrived Saturday to find out about Jagathy’s condition.
Jagathy, 62, has acted in more than 1,000 Malayalam films.
The accident occurred near the Kozhikode University campus around 4.30 a.m. Saturday when the Innova car carrying him hit a divider. The driver of the car escaped with minor injuries.
Jagathy was on his way from Thrissur to Coorg in Karnataka to join the location of director Lenin Rajendran’s latest film.
Due to the accident, more than a dozen films in Malayalam which are under various stages of production will be affected.
