On March 2, Sushmita had shared the news about her heart attack through an Instagram post and revealed that it had taken place two days prior. In the note, the former Miss Universe-turned-actress wrote, “Keep your heart happy & courageous, and it’ll stand by you when you need it the most Shona’. (Wise words by my father @sensubir ) I suffered a heart attack a couple of days back…Angioplasty done…stent in place…and most importantly, my cardiologist reconfirmed ‘I do have a big heart’.”
Days later, she revealed in an Instagram Live session that it was a ‘big’ heart attack. “”I survived a very big heart attack. It was very big. 95% blockage in the main artery. It was a phase and it passed. It doesn’t put fear in my heart. I am very lucky to be on the other side,” she said. The actress added that after her recovery, she will head off to Rajasthan to resume the shoot of her web series Aarya’s third season.
