Diganth Manchale, who was recently hospitalized for sustaining a neck injury, is now on the road to recovery. The Gaalipata 2 had to be airlifted from Goa, where he suffered the injury in his cervical vertebrae, to Bengaluru on Tuesday and admitted to the Manipal Hospitals to undergo surgery. His wife and actor Aindrita Ray shared a timely update with all his fans via social media and revealed that he is well on course to recover. The actor looked out of danger and even bore a smile, much to the relief of his fans.
"Happy to let you all know that Diganth’s surgery went well yesterday and he is on the road to a speedy recovery! Heartfelt thanks to all the fans, well wishers, friends in the media and KFI for their prayers and best wishes!🙏🏼" wrote Aindrita in her tweet.
The couple was vacationing in Goa when Diganth, a bonafide fitness enthusiast, attempted a somersault while on a trampoline but ended up falling on his head, which impacted his cervical vertebrae. He would later complain of numbness in his fingers and due to the lack of proper medical facilities in the facility, he was airlifted from the Dabolim airport in Goa to the HAL airport in Bengaluru on Tuesday. Diganth's friend and close collaborator Yogaraj Bhat later addressed the media and shared that the actor would be needing surgery but there is no cause for concern.
Over the years, Diganth Manchale has built the reputation for being a major fitness freak who can often be seen plunging into tough physical expeditions. Be it cycling, hiking, or water sports, the actor's social media feed carries enough evidence of his love for the outdoors - so much so that both Diganth and Aindrita Ray are now certified scuba divers and have been vocal enthusiasts of the discipline.
On the work front, Diganth was last seen in the comedy-drama Kshamisi Nimma Khateyalli Hanavilla and has the much-awaited Gaalipata 2 lined up for release. The latter will see him reunite with his old gang of Yogaraj Bhat, Golden Star Ganesh, Pawan Kumar, and Anant Nag, and the film hits the big screens on August 12. Gaalipata 2 isn't a sequel to the 2008 film (Gaalipata) but one can expect the upcoming venture to carry the same spirit and humor - Arjun Janya steps in for V. Harikrishna for music and fans are waiting with bated breath, considering the cult success of the soundtrack of Gaalipata. The team released the first single from Gaalipata 2 titled Exam Song.
Sharmiela Mandre, Vaibhavi Shandilya, Samyuktha Menon, and Nishvika Naidu too will be seen in the film along with the veteran actor Rangayana Raghu.
