Noted singer-composer Bhupen Hazarika's condition continues to be critical at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in suburban Andheri, doctors said today.
 
Hazarika's health deteriorated on October 23 after he developed pneumonia and was shifted to the intensive care unit of the hospital.
 
"He is on ventilator support and is undergoing dialysis. Over the last few days, his kidneys were not functioning properly and he was not passing adequate urine," doctors said.
 
The music director was hospitalised in June last after complaining of breathlessness, owing to a chest infection.    
 
Hazarika celebrated his 86th birthday in hospital on September 8.
 
He has sung in many Indian languages, including Bengali, Assamese and Hindi. He is the recipient of the Padma Bhushan and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award.
