Anurag Shyam, brother of late actor Anupam Shyam, says that actor Aamir Khan had given them an assurance of a dialysis centre in Pratapgarh, but stopped attending their phone calls after some time. He said that Anupam was upset with the news that his show would soon be pulled off air.
Anurag said in a new interview that Anupam Shyam was upset that he could not meet their mother when she was ill. She was in Pratapgarh at the time and the Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2 actor could not go because the Uttar Pradesh town had no dialysis centre and that would have posed a health risk for the actor.
Anurag said, “Our family has been facing a lot. My mother died last month. Anupam was shocked that he could not go to Pratapgarh (where their mom stayed). Without a dialysis centre in the town, going there would have been a major health risk for Anupam. We urged for a dialysis centre in Pratapgarh and Anupam even went to Aamir Khan for the same.”
He said that Aamir Khan had given them an assurance but stopped receiving calls from the family after a few months. Anurag told the news channel that the actor was worried after hearing rumours that his show would be pulled off air.
Anurag Shyam said in the interview that the actor’s health condition had improved and doctors had even removed the ventilator. However, his condition worsened after that and his blood pressure dropped sharply, he said. It led to multiple organ failure and his death.
Anupam Shyam had been suffering from kidney ailment for a few years and was hospitalised about a week ago. He was best known for playing the antagonist. It was the TV show Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2 that made him a household name. He had earlier worked with Aamir Khan in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan.
