Noted Malayalam cinema actor Thilakan has been hospitalised in Thrissur following certain neurological problems, a doctor attending on him said.

Neurosurgeon Dr PC Gilvas said the condition of the 72-year-old was stable and he would be shifted to his room later in the day.

Mr. Thilakan had complained of uneasiness on July 29 during a film shoot and was admitted to a private nursing home in Palakkad, from where he was referred to the Jubilee Mission Hospital Medical College in Thrissur.

Mr. Thilakan had suffered a stroke some time back, hospital sources said.
