Television actress Nupur Alankar, who has been part of many popular shows like ‘Swaragini’ and ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?…Ek Baar Phir’, seems to be facing a severe financial crisis. It is because all her money has been stuck in the scam-hit Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative (PMC) Bank. Since Nupur’s mother needs to be hospitalised due to some ailment, she is in urgent need of money.

Actress Renuka Shahane, who is a good friend of Nupur, took to her social media account to seek financial help on behalf of Nupur. In her post, Renuka wrote, “A very dear actress friend of mine, Nupur Alankar has been facing a lot of financial problems due to all her money, unfortunately, being stuck in the PMC bank which crashed leaving their customers in the lurch. Nupur has been taking care of her ailing mother with whatever income she was generating through acting & practising alternate therapy. Due to the lockdown that work has stopped. Her mother needs hospitalization which is going to cost a lot. I am sharing her mother’s account details. Do donate whatever you can to help. Trust me when I say that Nupur is the last person who would ask for help unless she was pushed to the brink. Thank You 🙏🏽(sic).”

In an earlier interview with Times of India, Nupur revealed that with her accounts frozen, she had to sell off her jewellery to survive. “With no money at home and all our accounts frozen, I was left with no option, but to sell off my jewellery. In fact, I had to borrow Rs 3000 from a fellow actor. Another one transferred Rs 500 for my commute. So far, I have borrowed Rs 50,000 from friends. There is no clarity when the problem will be resolved and we are scared that we will lose our money,” she had told the daily.
