Dignath Manchale is married to Aindrita Ray and recently, the actor’s father-in-law also talked about the accident. He told Times Of India, “Yesterday, in Goa, he was doing some sports activity. He was on the trampoline and suddenly he fell on his back. It’s a bit serious (injury) as there is a dislocation of the cervical vertebra. His fingers started numbing and since they didn’t have the proper equipment (to treat him) they thought they will shift him to Bangalore. But it was not advisable to shift him to Bangalore in this condition. I believe there was some arrangement by the Goa government and they arranged special aircraft for them. They are now on the way to Bangalore right now. They will land at the HAL airport and straight away shift him to Manipal. they will see the condition and most probably do the surgery today itself or tomorrow morning.”
On the work front, Dignath Manchale will next be seen in Gaalipata 2, which will release in August. He made his acting debut in 2006 with the film Miss California.
Dignath Manchale is an avid rider, surfer, certified diver and rock climber. The actor surely loves adventure sports.
