On December 11, the 46-year-old was admitted to the ICU ward of the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai after suffering a heart attack. The doctors found a blockage in his artery, and D’Souza underwent angiography. His condition was declared stable and he was kept under observation on that day. D’Souza was accompanied by his wife Lizelle D’Souza at the hospital.
On December 14, Lizelle posted a short video on her Instagram handle to share updates about her husband’s recovery. In the video, D’Souza is seen tapping his legs to a song. The duo thanked everyone for their support.
Earlier, in a report by The Times of India, Ramesh Taurani, who produced the 2018 Hindi action thriller film Race 3 which is helmed by D’Souza, said that a stent (a metal mesh inserted in surgical procedures to make the blood flow freely in blocked coronary arteries) had been used. Taurani had then shared the news that D’Souza’s condition was stable.
Many of the choreographer’s friends and members from the film fraternity, including actor Amitabh Bachchan, choreographers Geeta Kapur and Terence Lewis, who have been D’Souza’s co-judges for the dance reality show Dance India Dance, had wished him a speedy recovery on social media.
D’Souza began his career as a dance choreographer in the Hindi film industry and worked in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Bajirao Mastani, and Kalank. He has also directed several films based on dance. He has most recently been a judge at dance reality shows like Dance India Dance, Dance Plus, and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
