Veteran actor Vikram Gokhale’s health has once again deteriorated, the authorities of a Pune hospital, where he is undergoing treatment, confirmed on Saturday in an official statement. The actor continues to be on ventilator and is “back on B.P. support medication,” according to his health bulletin.
This comes just a day after the doctors revealed that the acclaimed actor was showing slow but steady improvement. Gokhale has been undergoing treatment in Pune’s Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital following health complications.
News of the actor’s death spread like wildfire a few days ago. However, his family refuted the reports, with Gokhale’s wife, Vrushali Gokhale calling the rumours “untrue”.
