News agency PTI mentioned one of the doctors treating the 85-year-old saying that the actor has been spontaneous in opening his eyes and even though it’s a slight improvement, they need more improvement to take a sigh of relief. “Some progress, [he is] giving responses though most of them are reflexes. He is much awake now. He is again back to giving responses. But most of them are reflex responses. But not very meaningful communication. He is responding to the voice, spontaneously opening eyes, but he cannot communicate or follow verbal commands,” he said.
