Hospitalised after a respiratory tract infection, legendary actress Suchitra Sen was shifted to the ICU of a private hospital tonight.
“She complained of breathlessness in the evening after which she was taken to the ICU,” a source at the super-speciality Belle Vue Clinic told PTI.
The 82-year-old actress, who lives a secluded life and stays locked up inside her apartment, was admitted to the hospital on December 23, after she had respiratory troubles.
Her granddaughter actress Raima Sen, however, said she is better now.
The clinic has formed a five-member-committee led by cardiologist Dr. Subrata Moitra to monitor the health of the actress 24x7.
The board will meet again to take stock of her health.
Sources said Ms. Sen also has diabetes which complicated the matter further.
She is being administered antibiotics and oxygen, they said.
