The condition of veteran actor A K Hangal, admitted to the Asha Parekh Hospital here last week, is quite critical, his son said Friday.
"Right now my father's condition is little serious, can't say anything. He has a breathing problem and is in ICU right now," Vijay Hangal told IANS.
"He is in the ICU and is condition is critical," he added. Hangal was hospitalised following a major hip fracture.
"He was hospitalised at Asha Parekh Hospital. He fell down at home when he was going to the washroom. He had a hip fracture. A surgery was about to happen, but during checkup many more complications came up so they could not do the surgery. There was congestion in his chest so separate treatment was also started for that," said Vijay Hangal.
The 98-year-old A K Hangal, associated with the Hindi film industry since 1967, recently appeared in a role in the television show "Madhubala".
He is best known for his roles in "Sholay", "Lagaan" among other films.
