The actor, after spending almost a week in hospital, was discharged. As of now, the doctors have advised Shreyas a complete six-week bed rest. The actor recently opened up about the unfortunate day and how he may not have survived if it had not been for his wife, Deepti.
Shreyas stated that on December 14th, 2023, he was filming for Akshay Kumar starrer Welcome to the Jungle. The shoot was action-packed, and during the final shot, he experienced breathlessness and weakness. Despite feeling fatigued from continuous shooting, the seasoned actor pushed through. However, as he headed towards his car after pack-up, he suddenly felt an intense pain in his left arm, which immediately alerted him that something was wrong. With a clear head, he wisely decided to visit his wife first before going directly to the hospital. Unfortunately, before they could reach the hospital, he suddenly felt numbness in his face, which caused him to faint.

The actor stated that he fully credits his wife, Deepti, for his second chance at life.

Sharing a heart-warming moment, the Makdee actor recalled that once he gained consciousness, he smiled at the medical staff and apologised to his wife, Deepti, for putting her through such a sad incident. The actor urges people to be very careful of their health and that no one should ignore even a minor warning that their body gives.
