Shankar Mahadevan suffers heart attack, doing fine now


Ace Bollywood singer and music composer Shankar Mahadevan suffered a heart attack and he underwent angioplasty. The 48-year-old musician rushed to the hospital after he complained of chest pain. Currently, he is recovering in a hospital in Delhi.

Hospital authorities and family refused to divulge any details of his health condition but it is learnt that Mahadevan suffered two back-to-back heart attacks.

His son Siddharth told media, “It was mainly due to exhaustion. Dad underwent angioplasty on the first day itself when he was hospitalised. Thankfully, there weren’t any major blockages. He is recuperating well and the doctors said he would be discharged within a day or two.”

Mahadevan took to Twitter to announce that he is recovering now. He wrote, “My dearest friends and well wishers, I have no words to express my gratitude for the amount of love and prayers I’ve received in the past few days when I was going through a health problem. By God’s blessings, your positive energy and some excellent doctors, all the procedures were successful and I am recovering very well. Waiting to come and rock with ya”ll soon! Lots of love and hugs”.

Confirming the news his spokesperson also said, “Yes he has been admitted to Delhi hospital, he was feeling uneasy and the doctor advised him for an ECG (electrocardiogram) checkup and then asked him to get hospitalised for a couple of days, but he is perfectly fine, and will be back in Mumbai soon. We request to respect the privacy”.

Due to Shankar’s sudden health fall, the composer’s performances in Rajkot and Mumbai were cancelled.
