New Delhi, July 5, 2021
Television actor Gehana Vasisth, who was recently released on bail in a case related to her alleged shooting of adult film videos, is in a serious condition at a local hospital in Mumbai, after suffering from a heart attack this weekend.
Less than a week after she was released from the Byculla Jail, where she was incarcerated for nearly five months in connection with a case related to alleged shooting of adult film videos, Gehana Vasisth aka Vandana Tiwari suffered a massive heart attack and was admitted to the Raksha Multispeciality Hospital in Mumbai’s Malad West area in the western suburbs of Mumbai on Saturday, her spokesperson Flynn Remedios said.
Remedios told this reporter that the actress suffered a heart attack on Saturday evening and was rushed to a local hospital in the western suburbs.
“I have not seen her yet. I am yet to visit her in the hospital. I got the news through someone from her building that she was hospitalized. I am told she is unconscious and not able to communicate with anyone,” Remedios said.
This is the third time this year that Gehana Vasisth has been admitted to hospital for diabetes ketoacidosis-related problems.
Even while she was in the women’s jail, she had suffered a stroke and was rushed to the Sir J J Hospital by the jail authorities.
Last year too, she was admitted to a hospital in suburban Mumbai where she was put on ventilator for 3 days.
According to Dr Pranav Kabra, MD, Raksha Multispeciality Hospital in Mumbai’s Malad West area, where Gehana was admitted last year, due to various complications in her vitals and body, the differential diagnosis was concluded as diabetic keto-acidosis (DK), which had reached a very advanced stage in Gehana’s system.
"Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones,” he says.
"Gehana Vasisth's condition is very serious. She is put on CPB PUMP as her lungs have failed. CPB pump is a cardiopulmonary bypass technique where a machine also known as heart lung machine takes on the functions of vital organs," an update by Dr Kabra said.
Gehana’s condition had improved on Monday morning, but her vital parameters completely went for a toss in the afternoon, he said.
Gehana Vasisht was arrested five months ago in a case related to alleged shooting of adult film videos . She was granted bail on June 25.
A model and actor, Gehna Vasisth was recently seen in web series Gandi Baat season 3, streamed on Alt Balaji.
