Ashiesh Is Facing Money Crunch
The actor was quoted by TOI as saying, "I was already facing a money crunch and the situation has worsened owing to the lockdown. I had savings of Rs 2 lakh, which I spent during the first two days of being hospitalised. First, I was tested for COVID-19, which cost me around Rs 11,000, followed by other expenses. I spent around 90,000 on a single round of dialysis."
