'Lata Mangeshkar's condition critical, improving'

November 13, 2019 10:09 IST

Lata Mangeshkar, who has been admitted to Breach Candy hospital's Intensive Care Unit after complaining of breathing difficulty, is still in a 'critical' condition, but is 'slowly improving', hospital sources said.

Mangeshkar, 90, was admitted to the Breach Candy hospital in the early hours of November 11, where Dr Patit Samdhani is treating her.

"She is critical but her condition has slowly improved. She is still in the hospital," a hospital insider told PTI.

The veteran singer's PR team released a statement saying she was 'stable'.

'Her parameters are good. Honestly speaking, she has fought so well that she is coming out of this setback. Being a singer, her lung capacity has pulled her through. Truly a fighter. We will update everyone when Lataji gets discharged and comes home. (We) request that we give family the space they deserve at the moment,' the statement read.

Mangeshkar's niece Rachana Shah said the singer's condition is 'stable and good'.

When asked by when the singer will be discharged from the hospital, she said, 'In a few days.'

Mangeshkar recorded her latest song this year, Saugandh Mujhe Is Mitti Ki, which was released on March 30 as a tribute to the Indian Army.
