Jayanthi’s son said to the media, “There is no truth in the news of Jayanti’s death in social media. Some TV channels reported that she was dead which is untrue as they were confused regarding her health.”
Jayanthi has been suffering from chronic asthma for a long time. When there was some issue with her breathing, the doctors advised to immediately hospitalize her.
Jayanthi’s son Krishna Kumar had earlier told a Kannada news channel, “She has been dealing with her asthma problem for more than three decades but it is for the first time, her problem got severe, which required hospitalization.”
Few actors like Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Leelavathi, Vinod Raj, B Saroja Devi, superstar Shivrajkumar amongst others have reportedly paid a visit to the ailing actress.
