Ace cinema director Mani Ratnam underwent a ‘routine’ health check-up at a corporate hospital here and is back to work, his office said on Monday. The clarification from the director’s office comes amidst reports in a section of media that he had been admitted to the hospital with suspected cardiac issues.

The hospital also said the Yuva maker had come there for a ‘routine’ check-up and left later. “After a routine check up Maniratnam sir (is) back to office today with his routine work... All is well,” his publicist Nikkil wrote on Twitter. The hospital also clarified that it was a regular check-up.

The national award winning director had suffered a heart attack some years ago. Mani Ratnam is presently busy with the pre-production work of his latest venture Ponniyin Selvan based on the epic Tamil novel which is expected to have a star-studded cast.
