The “Gangs of Wasseypur” director, who is doing fine, had the cardiac procedure after he complained of chest pain last week, added a source close to him. "Yes, he underwent an angioplasty. He is now recuperating. Thank you for your concern," his representative said in a brief statement.
The 48-year-old director has been advised rest for a couple of weeks, he added.
