Ace singer S. Janaki was at Tirupati to witness the marathon concert 'Sri Annamacharya Sankirtan Yagnam' performed by her nephew G. Balakrishna Prasad at Mahati auditorium when she suffered a head injury after she slipped and fell down in a hotel where she was staying. The television channels ran the news causing panic amongst her fans. Janaki tripped and fell on the hinges of a door and suffered bleeding injury on the hind side of her head, just above the neck.
She was immediately rushed to the Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS) Hospital for treatment. The doctors reportedly removed the blood clot and treated the wounded portion with five sutures. Though a diabetic, her sugar and blood pressure levels were under control, according to the team of doctors treating her.
Brushing aside the media reports of the veteran singer, slipping into coma, her son Muralikrishna said his mother's condition was stable.
