Manna Dey hospitalised with lung infection again

The veteran playback singer went off the ventilator in July but was in hospital yet again this month

Bollywood’s veteran playback singer Manna Dey has been hospitalised again. The singer was in hospital a couple of months ago for a chest infection and had to be put on the ventilator. He was discharged after his health improved.

Ten days ago, the 94-year-old singer of classic songs like Laaga chunari mein daag, Zindagi kaisi hai paheli, Yaari hai imaan mera yaar and Babu samjho ishare was admitted again to Narayana Hrudayalaya in Bangalore for a lung infection. Reports say the city’s increasing humidity may have caused the infection.

Dey’s condition is stable now but the family has asked the hospital not to issue any statements to the media. We wish Manna Da, as he is called, a speedy recovery!
