Kannada actor-producer Raghavendra Rajkumar is
recuperating in a private hospital here after emergent surgery
conducted to remove a blood clot in his brain, a hospital spokesman
said on Thursday. "The actor is responding to treatment and feeling
better than yesterday (Wednesday - when the clot was detected).
Though all his vital health parameters are normal, he is still
under observation," the spokesman told IANS here.
The 48-year-old second son of Kannada thespian Dr Rajkumar was
rushed to Columbia Asia referral hospital in the city's northwest
suburb early on Wednesday after he complained of uneasiness at a
gym near his residence where he goes regularly for fitness
According to the hospital's consultant (anesthesiology) Medha
Huilgol, the actor was operated soon after admission to remove the
clot from one of the blood vessels in the brain. "An angiogram test
revealed he did not have any heart problem though he had undergone
an angioplasty procedure two decades ago at a city hospital then," Huilgol told reporters.
Though hundreds of fans flocked to the hospital to know
Raghavendra's welfare, the hospital authorities requested them to
disperse after meeting his brothers and relatives outside as the
actor was resting and should not be disturbed. "There is no cause
for worry. He is out of danger. Our prayers have been answered. He
is recovering from the surgery," his elder brother and popular
Kannada actor Shivaraj Kumar (SRK) told reporters
outside the hospital.
Besides acting in a dozen Kannada movies, Raghavendra produced
hit films such as Jackie, Anna Bond and Yaare
Koogadali, starring his younger brother Puneet
