Mani Ratnam In Hospital – breathing difficulty
film director Mani Ratnam was admitted to the hospital here last night after he complained of “breathing difficulty” and discomfort in the chest and specialists, including cardiologists, were attending on him, hospital and family sources said.
The 52-year-old director, who introduced Oscar winning musician A R Rahman in “Roja”, had suffered a heart attack in 2004 when he was filming the multi-starrer, bi-lingual ‘Yuva’.
Mani Ratnam is currently involved in a project starring national award winner Vikram, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, among others, tentatively titled “Ravan.”
The condition of Ratnam, who is under observation, is now stable and he would remain in the hospital for “some time”, sources said.
