Actor Manish Vishwakarma, who is popularly known as Mendak Prasad from the hit TV show ‘Chidiya Ghar’, has slipped into a coma after he met with an accident on Sunday (June 28).
Manish, who was admitted to a government hospital, had been on ventillator until Monday (June 29).
Manish’s friend Shilpa Shinde told Mumbai Mirror that the actor wasn’t given proper treatment at KEM Hospital and is currently being treated at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital.
“When Manish, who is always punctual, didn’t reach the sets on time, a production scheduler called him almost 25 times till a cop answered the call and informed that Manish had met with an accident. He was taken to a nearby hospital but the doctors there were unequipped to handle with such severe injuries and suggested they take him to KEM Hospital in Parel,” said Shilpa.
Shilpa further said that Manish was initially left unattended and his case wasn’t taken into priority. “I heard from actor Trishikha Tripathi who was present at the hospital, along with Manish’s parents and two members of the production unit of Chidiya Ghar that the doctors did a CT scan. One doctor said it was a case of brain haemorrhage while another doctor had a different diagnosis,” told Shilpa.
Manish was on his way to the sets of the show on his bike when he met with an accident and was rushed to the hospital. Manish was hit by a car from behind. Blood clots were found in his brain.
