Mumbai: Actor-politician Shatrugan Sinha, who underwent bypass surgery on Monday, is recovering and has been shifted to a private room from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
He was operated upon July 16 at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital.
"Mr. Sinha is doing well. He is recovering. He has been moved from ICU to room yesterday (Thursday). He is fine now," Ram Narain, COO Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, told IANS.
