Mumbai: Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati has finally opened up on facing sever health issues, a fact he had earlier denied.
While appearing on Samantha Akkineni’s new chat show, Sam Jam, the actor broke down as he addressed his past illness.
Rana overcame critical health conditions, that he mentions, could have led to his death.
Talking about his tryst with his critical health condition that could have led to his premature death, the 35-year-old said, “When life was on a fast forward, there was suddenly a pause button. There was bp, calcification around the heart and you have failed kidneys…It could have been a 70 per cent chance of stroke or haemorrhage and a 30 per cent chance of death straight.”
After Rana got emotional, Samantha averred, “We were crumbling around you, but you were like this rock. I have seen this in front of me, that is why he is like a superhero to me.”
Earlier, there were reports that the actor was set to go for a kidney transplant, but denying the rumours, Rana in an interview said IANS, “I think there was enough speculated about it and I am tired of clarifying that I am absolutely fine and healthy. So, I think rumours about my health are now a boring topic. Whenever I leave Hyderabad, people get apprehensive, but I am thankful for the love and the concern people have been showering on me.”
On the professional front, Rana’s multilingual film Haathi Mere Saathi will release on Makar Sankranti next year.
