Anupam Shyam’s brother claims Aamir Khan had assured a dialysis centre; stopped picking their calls later
Veteran actor Anupam Shyam left for the heavenly adobe on August 8. The 63-year-old actor died after multiple organ failure. His health condition had deteriorated over the last few years. The Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya actor was suffering from kidney disease for the past one-and-a-half years. After the actor’s unfortunate demise, his brother Anurag Shyam has now opened up about the hard time the actor faced due to his health issues.
The late actor’s brother claimed that Aamir Khan had once assured them of providing a dialysis centre in Pratapgarh. However, later the superstar stopped picking up their calls. Read on to know what happened.
Anurag in a recent interview with Aajtak said that his brother Anupam wanted to meet their mother in Pratapgarh when she was ill. However, the actor couldn’t visit his mother as Pratapgarh (Uttar Pradesh) had no dialysis centre and that would mean taking a huge risk given his kidney ailment. It was then when Anupam had approached Aamir Khan for help.
“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. Aamir gave us the assurance but stopped picking our calls after a few months,” Anurag told the news channel.

Anurag also revealed that his brother was worried about his show going off-air. It all added to his worries. Anupam was admitted to the hospital a week ago and he breathed his last after his blood pressure dropped drastically.
Apart from popular TV shows, Anupam also featured in films like Satya, Lagaan, Gandhigiri, Parzania, Bandit Queen, Dil Se, Nayak: The Real Hero, and Slumdog Millionaire.
