Bhubaneswar: The health condition of actor Papu Pom Pom continues to be serious though there has reportedly been improvement in certain health parameters, sources at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, said on Monday.
Sources told Odisha Bytes that Papu, who is suffering from liver and pancreatic ailments, continues to be on ventilator support. “His condition has improved slightly and we are hopeful that he will gradually recover,” a person in the know said requesting anonymity.
According to sources, functioning of Papu’s liver and pancreas has improved since he was admitted to AIIMS on May 15. “But it is too early to say anything concrete. We are optimistic that he will be out of danger,” a source said.
Papu developed severe pain in his abdomen during a shoot and was admitted in a private hospital here in the second week of May. While his fans, well-wishers and those connected with the Odia entertainment industry are praying for speedy recovery of Odisha’s top comedian, doctors attending on him said his condition is delicately poised.
Papu’s wife Sangeeta, relatives and a few friends are camping at New Delhi to attend to the actor’s medical needs.
