Chennai: A medical bulletin issued by the hospital said the 61- year-old National Award winner was admitted with the fracture in the right leg. “He underwent surgery. He is stable. He will be in the hospital for next 2-3 days,” a medical bulletin from Apollo Hospital said.
The actor suffered the injury after slipping on the stairs at his Alwarpet office in the wee hours of Thursday. He had recently returned from the US where he had gone to film his latest directorial venture ‘Sabash Naidu,’ a trilingual comedy flick, also starring popular comedians Saurabh Shukla and Brahmanandam.
The ‘Vishwaroopam’ star, who will be seen sharing screen space for the first time with his daughter Shruti in the film, had taken up the direction of the movie after the original director Rajeev Kumar, fell ill.
