According to sources, Soumitra Chatterjee will be released from hospital once the effects of encephalopathy have subsided. 

Dr Arindam Kar, leading the team of 15 doctors, treating the actor, said, “Mr Chatterjee is doing very well. He is recovering and his consciousness has gone better substantially. He is obeying commands and is responsive and certainly understanding a few words. The good part is he is speaking a little bit but not full fledged mode. The oxygen saturation has also improved while his Sodium and Potassium have been corrected. We are giving all sorts of good therapy.”

“The veteran actor slept well last night and his restlessness has also improved. He is still very weak, frail and complete recovery of neurological function is yet to be achieved. But it seems that he is going in the right direction. As of now, there is no new infection or any episode of fever," Dr Kar added.
