Veteran actress Jayanthi passed away at a private hospital in Bengaluru on Tuesday. She was reportedly suffering from chronic asthma and was admitted to a hospital on Sunday. She was 73.
Just a couple of hours ago, Jayanthi was shifted out of the Intensive care unit of the hospital where she was admitted on Monday morning after she complained of having difficulties in breathing.
An IndianExpress report quoted Jayanthi’s son as informing a Kannada news channel, “She has been suffering from chronic asthma for a long time. When there was some issue with her breathing, the doctors advised to immediately hospitalise her.”
Krishna further added, “Jayanthi has been dealing with her asthma problem for more than three decades but it is for the first time, her problem got severe, which required hospitalisation.”
The veteran actress has acted in over 500 films and was visited by a number of South Indian celebs who enquired of her well being.
