According to reports, Ganesan has come to Chennai recently to meet his brother, Narayanan. On Saturday- October 1, he complained of chest pain after which he was rushed to the hospital. 

He was staying in his house in T Nagar and after he reported health discomfort, he was taken to MGM Healthcare Hospital in Aminjikarai, Chennai for further treatments.
