Noted film director Mani Ratnam was hospitalised here following breathing difficulty and dizziness.
He was admitted to the hospital here last night after he complained of "breathing difficulty" and discomfort in the chest and specialists, including cardiologists, were attending on him, hospital and family sources said.
The condition of Ratnam, who is under observation, is now stable and he would remain in the hospital for "some time", sources said.
The 52-year-old director, who introduced Oscar winning musician A R Rahman in "Roja", had survived a heart attack in 2004 when he was filming the multi-starrer, bi-lingual 'Yuva'.
Ratnam is currently involved in a project starring national award winner Vikram, Abhishek Bacchhan and Aishwarya Rai, among others, tentatively titled "Ravan."
Director of 'Guru,' Mani Ratnam is known for taking up controversial issues like the Bombay riots in 'Bombay' and terrorism-related subjects in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer 'Dil Se', 'Roja' and 'Kannathil Muthamittal.'
