Was Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Maharaji aka Rakesh Diwana’s death a medical negligence?

The actor who portrayed the character of Maharaji in Star Plus’ popular show passed away today, after a bariatric surgery at Mohak Hospital in Indore.

Rakesh Diwana’s was scheduled to undergo a bariatric surgery for weight loss. The surgery is apparently a very common practice for overweight patients and considered to be give results without complications.

According to Diwana’s daughter, Shivani Diwana, her father was admitted in the hospital on April 23 for the surgery. However, post the surgery the actor was transferred to the ICU. The doctors claimed that they faced some complications during the operation. Three days after the surgery also, Rakesh did not recover; he was instead put on ventilators yesterday.

Today morning, April 27, the doctors informed Shivani that Rakesh had apparently suffered some brain injury during the surgery. Shivani, who has lost her mother five years ago finds the whole thing rather fishy, as the hospital did not charge her for post surgery charges. Rakesh was just 48 years old. Well it cannot be concluded if it was really medical negligence that caused the sudden death or just circumstances.

Besides Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Rakesh has also been part of Ramayana – the show where he played the role of Kumbhkarna.

BollywoodLife offers condolence to his children and family.
