Veteran Tamil actress Manorama, 77, better known to those close to her as Aachi, was hospitalised today on June 5th, after she she complained of severe breathing issues which started yesterday. She is currently in the Intensive Care Unit of a private hospital, and neither her family nor the doctors have given any statements to the media so far.
According to rumors though, the doctors found less potash in her blood than the normal level and this has been linked as the causal factor for her respiratory ailments. They have, however, made it clear that she should stay in the ICU for another two days.
The actress has always been a fan favorite and in a career that has lasted over five decades, she has acted in over a thousand movies.
Manorama gained her recognition through acclaimed performances that showed versatility, ranging from comedic roles to dramatic ones.
The ageing star has had her run ins with health issues and injuries before, including a knee operation two years ago, a head injury and it was just this March that she exhibited signs of heart problems as strong chest pains and was hospitalized then to receive treatment for it. Fortunately, she recovered soon and was discharged a few days later.
Manorama celebrated her birthday last month and we,along with the rest of the fans, pray for her speedy recovery…
