Mumbai, July 18: Everyone desire to have a prominent life, get fame, act in movies. The actors have utmost enjoyment in their life but actually, there is also a dark part which remains hidden from the camera. Not all the actors enjoy the same.

In such a shocking case, an actor Sitaram Panchal who has worked in critically acclaimed films like Peepli Live, Slumdog Millionaire, Paan Singh Tomar and Jolly LLB 2 is struggling from cancer.

The ailing actor has asked for help in a Facebook post shared on Monday morning. In his post, Panchal expressed his
health is deteriorating and wrote: “Bhaio, meri help karo meri cancer se halat kharab hoti ja rahi hai, apka kalakar bhai Sitaram Panchal.”

Panchal is reportedly suffering from lung and kidney cancer and his condition has failed to improve and he has been unable to
work over the last 10 months, said a Hindustan Times report.

Panchal’s wife informed that he was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, after which he resorted to ayurvedic remedies. However, he did not even respond to homoeopathic treatment, to which he was shifted only recently.

“Initially, he used to work and we could make ends meet. But now, he does not even have the strength to stand up. He has lost
a lot of weight. Ever since the cancer was detected in January 2014, he has taken Ayurvedic treatment. It was only recently
that he started a new homoeopathic medicine, following which, his condition worsened and we discontinued the medicines,”
Panchal’s wife told Hindustan Times.

Meanwhile, Cine And TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) have also put out a plea to gather help for Panchal. “It pains us to
hear the suffering of our esteemed member Shri Sitaram Panchal, we assure him of all the help we can provide to him in his
hour of need and also urge all of you to open your hearts,” read a post on CINTAA’s Facebook page.

Sitaram Panchal has featured as a dance teacher in Slumdog Millionaire, as Bhai Thakur in Peepli Live, as Lala Lajpat Rai in
The Legend of Bhagat Singh. He’s also well known for his role in TV show Ek Ghar Banaunga.

Mumbai, March 20: While reports suggested Janhvi Kapoor and Priya Prakash Varrier were being considered, it has now been confirmed by the makers that it is Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan who will play the female lead in the Rohit Shetty directorial Simmba. Sara will share screen space with Ranveer Singh in the cop drama, which will hit the screens on December 28, 2018.

Ace filmmaker Karan Johar, who is producing the film under his production banner Dharma Productions, took to Twitter to confirm the news.

“Sara Ali Khan in #Simmba with @RanveerOfficial directed by ROHIT SHETTY! Releasing on the 28th of December 2018 ! This winter gets hotter!!!!” he wrote.

Sara is currently shooting for her debut film Kedarnath. The film, which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput, is expected to release on December 28, 2018. If the makers of Simmba and Kedarnath stick to their release dates, Sara will have two releases in the space of one week. Now, that would be a dream launch.

Simmba is the official Bollywood remake of Jr NTR’s Telugu hit Temper. “We have bought the rights of Temper but our film is not exactly a remake. We wanted to take four-five scenes from Temper but we thought it’s better to buy the rights. It’s what we did with Singham,” Rohit Shetty was quoted as saying in an earlier interview.

In Simmba, Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of a police officer for the first time in his career.
