Hospital’s statement: Krishna currently remains in a critical state, and has been put on a ventilator. An expert, multi-disciplinary team including cardiologists, neurologists, and critical care specialists are closely monitoring his clinical condition.

Telugu superstar and actor Mahesh Babu’s father Krishna has been admitted to Continental Hospital in Hyderabad after suffering a cardiac arrest. He was rushed to the hospital around midnight in an unconscious state and was revived within 20 minutes after CPR was performed by doctors. He is currently in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where he will be monitored for the next 24 hours.

A statement issued by the hospital said that Krishna ‘remains in a critical state and has been put on a ventilator.’

‘Shri Ghattamaneni Krishna was brought into the emergency department of Continental Hospitals, Hyderabad at 01.15am this morning (14-11-2022) in cardiac arrest. The doctors immediately performed a CPR, resuscitated him within 20 minutes and shifted him to the ICU for treatment & observation.

An expert, multi-disciplinary team including cardiologists, neurologists, and critical care specialists are closely monitoring his clinical condition. The family members have been appraised of his condition accordingly,’ the hospital’s statement read.

Krishna, 79, has acted in more than 300 films across in his three-decade-long illustrious career. He is considered Telugu cinema’s first superstar. Krishna’s last on-screen outing was in 2016 with the Telugu film, ‘Sri Sri’.

Last month, Krishna’s first wife and Mahesh Babu’s mother Indira Devi died after suffering from a prolonged illness.
