Mission Mangal's director Jagan Shakti was rushed to the hospital after losing consciousness at a party on January 25, 2020. It was later known that he was suffering a blood clot in his brain and is undergoing treatment for the same.
The big star of Mission Mangal, Akshay Kumar is reported to be taking care of Jagan Shakti's medical expenses. He is apparently very attached to the director and stepped forward to help out as soon as he heard the news.
Hindustan Times quoted a source as saying, "Akshay is very attached to every director he has worked with, and doesn't step back from helping them in any way, apart from the various social causes he is anyway associated with. He was taken aback when he heard this news, and made sure his team immediately reached out to Jagan's family to take care of all the medical expenses."
Dalip Tahil, another Mission Mangal actor, also corroborated this news as he told Mumbai Mirror that he heard that Akshay was among the first to know and got Jagan admitted to the hospital, and is even taking care of things.
According to Mission Mangal producer R. Balki, Jagan Shakti's condition is stable now.
