Senior actor Anupam Shyam, who has been a part of several shows like Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya, Doli Armaano Ki and Krishna Chali London, has been admitted in ICU at a Mumbai hospital, after he reportedly collapsed after dialysis on Monday (July 27, 2020). Apparently, the actor is suffering from kidney problems.
Anupam Was Undergoing Dialysis
As per India TV news report, the actor's brother Anurag said that Anupam was undergoing dialysis at Apex Kidney Care in the north Mumbai suburb of Malad. The 62-year-old actor was shifted to Lifeline Hospital in Goregaon on Monday, after he collapsed during dialysis. Anurag told PTI, "Since we couldn't admit him there, we rushed him to Lifeline Hospital immediately. He is currently in ICU." The family has reached out to the actor's friends for financial assistance.
Manoj Bajpayee Has Said He’ll Look Into The Matter
Anurag told the leading daily that since the actor could not get good treatment due to financial crisis, he has informed his friends about his health and has also reached out to Salman Khan's charity Being Human Foundation through their website. He also revealed that he got a call from Manoj Bajpayee, who said he will look into the matter.
Actor Has Not Been Keeping Well Since Last Six Months
Anurag told Spotboye, "He has been keeping unwell for the last six months now. He has an infection in his kidney due to which we had admitted him to Hinduja Hospital back then and got him treated for almost one and half month. That time his health got fine but he was suggested dialysis, from time to time. But he decided to go for ayurvedic treatment as dialysis costs a lot. That didn't help. He got breathless recently because of not doing dialysis. His chest was filled with water, so we again started his dialysis and he started getting relief."
Anupam’s Brother Seeks Financial Help
He further added, "I was getting his dialysis done in a Malad hospital but yesterday after his dialysis he collapsed and they suggested we take him to some other hospital which has an ICU. So I got him admitted to this hospital but it is expensive and we don't have money for the treatment. All of what he has earned has already been spent on his medication. We are really in need of money. I request you all to spread the word in his fraternity so that someone can come ahead and help us."
