'Mitra is in the intensive care unit (ICU). His condition is improving but due to kidney ailments, creatinine levels are still high. His heart condition is also weak but not alarming,' CEO of the hospital, Pradip Tondon, told PTI.
He had undergone successive dialysis on Friday and Saturday and his condition is now gradually improving, Tondon said.
'I spoke with Mitra today (Sunday). He is much better,' he added.
Mitra had undergone regular check-ups at the hospital in the past several years.
