Kannada filmmaker Rockline Venkatesh has been admitted to a private hospital in Bengaluru after he recently complained of shortness of breath. His son Abhilash, who is a doctor by profession, is overseeing his treatment.
While Venkatesh’s illness is suspected to be a case of COVID-19, there is no official confirmation on the same.
It is worth noting that Rockline Venkatesh recently came in contact with actor-politician Sumalatha Ambareesh, who recently tested positive for coronavirus. Venkatesh and Sumalatha recently met Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa regarding the construction of a memorial for late matinee idol Ambareesh.
Sumalatha, however, was placed under home treatment as her symptoms were not serious.
