Legendary actor Krishna, father of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu, has been hospitalised in Hyderabad after suffering a cardiac arrest Monday morning.
The veteran actor is in the ICU where he’ll be monitored 24 hours a day. In a medical bulletin, Continental Hospitals Managing Director said he’s on a ventilator and remains critical.
Apparently, the actor was brought into the emergency department of the hospital in cardiac arrest. It took 20 minutes of CPR to revive him.
As one of Telugu cinema’s first superstars, Krishna has starred in over 300 movies. His last big screen appearance was in 2016. Since Krishna’s first wife and Mahesh Babu’s mother Indira Devi passed away in September, the family has been going through a tough time. Ramesh Babu, Mahesh Babu’s brother, died earlier this year too.
Mahesh Babu’s fans and other celebrities took to social media to send prayers and best wishes after hearing about Krishna’s health.
