Noted Indian director Mani Ratnam was admitted to Chennai’s Apollo Hospital last night after he complained of breathing difficulty, chest pain and dizziness.
One of the most respected filmmakers of India, Ratnam is being looked after by a team of doctors, including cardiologists, reports say.
According to family sources, Ratnam’s condition is stable but he will be kept under medical observation for some time.
The 52-year-old filmmaker has been working quite hard in the last few months while shooting for his bilingual film Ravana in different part of India with Aishwarya Rai , Abhishek Bachchan and South superstar Vikram .
Though Ratnam hasn’t had any serious health scare recently, he had survived a heart attack in 2004 when he was filming the multi-starrer, bi-lingual Yuva .
The director then had a second attack during the shoot of Guru on top of Howrah Bridge in Kolkata in 2006, reports say.
Ratnam is credited for making the careers of many talented artists including A R Rahman who debuted as music director in his film ‘Roja’. Ratnam has also extracted best performances from Abhishek in films like ‘Yuva’ and ‘Guru’ and he enjoys a special respect from the Bachchan family.
