Dr. Rajiv Bhagwat, the cardiologist who performed Sen’s surgery, was asked if the 47-year-old diva overlooked any red flags. He said, "It's difficult to say that, but let's say, 'Sushmita is blessed that she came in at the right time and place.'" 

During an interaction with ETimes, he was quizzed on whether Sushmita's "high physical activity" limited the damage," and he responded to the question by saying, "Yes." 

He added, "Her high physical activity helped limit the damage. This is the biggest message that has come out." 

He continued, "What is important to underline here is that exercising should not be more than 3 to 4 days a week; it should not be daily, give time for the body to recover from the strain of exercise. I am not advocating that one needs to push himself or herself so much as if he/she is out there to become a physical trainer. With continuous exercise without rest and adequate sleep, the hormone levels may not cool down, posing a huge risk."

Dr. Rajiv was also asked how he and Sushmita Sen managed to keep a low profile, he said, "Good, that's how it should be. That's the beauty of this episode. So it all went very peacefully." 

Sushmita Sen announced the news of her heart attack via an Instagram post earlier this month. An excerpt from her post read: "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.' This post is to inform you (my well-wishers & loved ones) of the good news ...that all is well & I am ready for some life again!!!"
