A 9-member medical team was formed on Monday who then decided that SPurav doesn’t need any further angioplasty for the remaining blockages in his coronary arteries.

The doctor had said, “I don’t think we are considering surgery at the moment because of his young age and the advancement of angioplasty. But we are taking expert opinions from the best cardiologists in the country and in the world and then we will have to take a call about what to do with the 2 blocked arteries and once that is done, another 3-4 weeks of resting and he should be back to his active life and that’s what we want for Dada to be back to his active life,.”
