Legendary Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee is still in a “high risk zone” though his parameters are stable, doctors attending to the thespian said on Monday.

The 85-year-old Dadasaheb Phalke awardee has fever and continues to be in a “drowsy, confusional state”, which is a matter of concern, they said.

Chatterjee might have to undergo an MRI on Monday evening, doctors at the private hospital, where he is being treated for COVID-19 , said.

“He is stable, had good sleep last night, but is still in a high risk zone. His oxygen saturation level has improved,” a doctor said. Chatterjee was given plasma therapy twice on Saturday and the octogenarian also underwent a CT scan.

The actor was admitted to the hospital in Kolkata on 6 October after he tested positive for coronavirus . He was shifted to intensive care after his health condition worsened, hospital authorities said on 9 October.

In the last two months, Chatterjee had been shooting for a biopic and a documentary on his life. India Today writes that Chatterjee, along with Parambrata Chatterjee along with Jisshu Sengupta, star in the biopic titled Abhijaan.
