Ambareesh may be shifted to Singapore for treatment


AmbareeshActor and housing minister M H Ambareesh will be shifted to Singapore for further treatment early on Saturday.

The actor is stable and his family has taken the decision to take him to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. He will leave around 3.30am, according to a spokesperson of Vikram Hospital where the actor is being treated.

Sources close to the family said superstar Rajinikanth spoke to Ambareesh’s actor-wife Sumalatha, son Abhishek Gowda and others in the family. Citing his own experience, the Tamil superstar suggested Singapore is the best place to get Ambareesh treated for lung infection and respiratory problems.

Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had given similar advice to the family while assuring financial support to his medical expenses abroad.

Dr Satish, however, denied reports that Rajinikanth visited Ambareesh at the hospital two days ago. “We have no such information,” he said.
