Kannada actor Diganth Manchale is one of the popular stars in the Sandalwood. The actor was holidaying in Goa with his wife Aindrita Ray when the accident happened. He attempted a backflip and had a nasty fall. He was then airlifted to Bengaluru where he underwent neck surgery. Photos of Diganth from the hospital with his neck band are doing the rounds on social media. Currently, the actor is doing fine and is on the road to recovery. Talking to the Times of India, Aindrika explained what happened to her husband and shared his health update.
Aindrita said, "The accident took place on Sunday evening. Diganth loves adventure and that comes with its share of injuries. He often downplays pain caused due to any activity he has indulged in. He assumed he would sleep off the pain caused by this incident, but woke up in a lot of pain on Monday. We sought the opinion of a doctor and that is when we understood the gravity of the injury. The MRI scan showed reason for concern, and it was a surgery that was time-bound. It was hard to take calls that required a lot of consideration. When one of Diganth's cousins, who is a doctor, saw the reports, he suggested that we do it in Bengaluru. It was raining and there was a yellow alert, but I took the decision to go ahead with the treatment in Bengaluru."
