Wrestler-turned-actor Dara Singh, known for his roles in 'King Kong' and 'Faulad', suffered cardiac arrest and was admitted to a city hospital in a "critical" condition, according to doctors treating him.


"He is very, very critical. He was brought in an emergency condition to hospital at 5:15pm. He had suffered cardiac arrest. He is in ICU and we are monitoring his condition hour-by-hour," Dr Ram Narain, chief operating officer at Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in suburban Andheri told PTI on Saturday night.

Earlier, the 83-years- old actor's son, Vindu, had said that his father was serious.

"He is serious. There is blood clot in his brain or he has suffered heart attack... We are not sure what has happened. We have been told that he is under observation for 24 hours," Vindu said.

The veteran actor played the role of Hanuman in Ramanand Sagar's television series 'Ramayan' and was last seen in Imtiaz Ali's 'Jab We Met' in 2007.
