Leading Carnatic singer Bombay Jayashri reportedly suffered a brain haemorrhage while on tour in the United Kingdom, and has been rushed to hospital, according to media reports.
A report in The Hindu quoted a source as saying that the singer was undergoing a keyhole surgery and that her parameters looked good.
The singer may be airlifted to Chennai later, reports quoted sources as saying.
She had reportedly complained of neck pain last night and didn’t come down for breakfast and lunch, as per reports. Later, she was found lying unconscious and was rushed to the hospital.
Today, she was scheduled to perform at the Tung Auditorium, Yoko Ono Lennon Centre, University of Liverpool.
Last week, the Music Academy announced that the prestigious Sangita Kalanidhi award for 2023 would be presented to Jayashri. Jayashri has also sung several popular songs for films. (THE NEW INDIAN EXPRESS)
