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.
