Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar's condition was stable and he is expected to be released from the hospital in San Diego very soon, family sources said on Tuesday.

"Panditji was suffering from pneumonia but now his condition is stable," Robin Pal, a spokesman of the internationally renowned sitar player told PTI.

He also said that the 86-year-old sitarist is expected to be released from hospital very soon.

"There is nothing to worry about. We have been getting calls from people across the country who are worried about Panditji's health. With their prayers and best wishes he will come back home in a few days," Pal said.

Shankar was admitted in a hospital in San Diego, California a week back with a lung problem and had been kept under constant observation.
