Jagathy Sreekumar, who was gravely injured after he met with an accident at nearby Tenhipalam on March 10, was able to recognise his college mates recently. Now, thanks to the intense physiotherapy session that the actor has been undergoing off late, Jagathy is showing great signs of improvement. When the doctors asked him to spell his name, he spelt it very clearly. This is the first step of improvement in speech therapy and a hint that gives he would speak in future.
Speaking to TOI, Jagathy Sreekumar's son Rajkumar said, "His right leg which was paralysed after the accident has completely recovered and he has begun to walk, albeit with some help. His right arm is yet to recover fully, but the doctors have said that if he continues to recover at this rate, he would be well enough to be discharged from the hospital within two months. He further added, "The doctors have said he has completely recovered his memory and there is no retrieval issue which could have been a problem after such a traumatic experience. They say it's just one of the many good signs he is showing on his path to a swift recovery."
Actor Mukesh, who also visited Jagathy at the hospital said that the actor is improving well and even smiled when he heard his voice. What's more, the actor is also able to move around the room, with a little help.
Once he is discharged, Jagathy is expected to undergo some ayurvedic treatments in Kerala for few months after which he will be ready to come back to the big screen by mid next year.
