It was on 14th December when Shreyas Talpade suffered a heart attack while he was shooting for an upcoming movie Welcome To The Jungle. The actor was rushed to Mumbai’s Bellevue Hospital where he underwent an angioplasty. Weeks after suffering an unfortunate heart attack, Shreyas Talpade has now opened up about it.
Recently, Shreyas Talpade got into a conversation with Times Of India wherein he opened up about the same. He shared that his heart had stopped beating for 10 minutes straight and doctors had to use electric shocks to revive him. Shreyas Talpade urged everyone not to take their lives for granted and he said, “Jaan hai toh jahaan hai”.
Shreyas Talpade told the news portal, “Clinically, I was dead. It was a massive cardiac arrest. A wake-up call would be an understatement. This is my second chance at life!” He also recalled how his wife Deepti had rushed him to the hospital. Shreyas added, “After the last shot, I felt breathless, and my left hand started paining. I could barely walk to my vanity van and change my clothes. I thought it was a muscle pull since we were shooting action sequences. You don’t think of the worst-case scenario, right? I had never experienced this kind of fatigue.”
He added, “As soon as I got into the car, I felt I should head straight to the hospital, but thought I should go home first. My wife, Deepti, saw me in that state and within 10 minutes, we were on our way to the hospital. We were almost there and could see the hospital gate, but the entry was barricaded, and we had to take a U-turn. The very next moment my face went numb, and I passed out. That was a cardiac arrest.“
Well, as the actor is recovering, Shreyas said that he is taking one day at a time and will resume work shortly.
