Dr Pratit Samdani of Breach Candy hospital said, “Lata Mangeshkar is slowly improving and is still on life support.”
Hospital sources also say that 90-year-old singer Lata Mangeshkar is suffering from pneumonia, heart problems and chest infection which has made her lungs weak and currently on antibiotics. Unless her infection gets under control, the doctors cannot do any procedures. She is critical. The doctors are monitoring her health continuously.
