Comedian Venu Madhav, who has been suffering from liver and kidney-related ailments for some time now, was admitted to the intensive care unit at the Yashoda Hospital, Hyderabad, on Tuesday.
Venu Madhav was rushed to the hospital after his condition turned critical. The 40-year-old actor is being treated by a team of doctors and he is reportedly put on a ventilator. The news of his hospitalisation shocked his fans and members of the film fraternity. An update on his health is awaited.
Before trying his luck as an actor in the industry, Venu Madhav was a renowned and popular mimicry artiste. He became popular with films like Sampradayam, Tholi Prema, Thammudu, Lakshmi, Master, Arya, Chatrapathi, Aadi, Gemini, Naga, Dil and a lot more. After 2015, which was for Rudramadevi, he did not sign for any films.
There were several reports earlier that claimed that the actor's condition had turned severe. But the actor thrashed all of them by appearing on a talk show. In fact, he said that it was his conscious decision to stay away from films instead of taking up roles wherein comedy was limited to using cuss words.
In recent times, Venu campaigned for Telugu Desam Party in Nandyal by-elections as well as in the 2019 general elections.
