The 68-year-old, who has been recovering from a knee injury, was rushed to hospital after she slipped and fell down at her bathroom last week. Hospital sources claim that Manorama is on ventilator support and her condition is critical. However, the doctors are confident that the veteran actress' condition would improve after undergoing a surgery today.
Manorama, who is fondly called as Aachi by her fans, has acted in over 1500 films in her five decade career in the Tamil film industry. In fact, she is the Guinness World Record holder for acting in the most number of films. She was last seen in the film Ponnar Shankar, which was directed by Thiagarajan.
