Many performers have found it difficult to find employment as a result of the pandemic, including senior actress Sunita Shirole. If the lack of a job wasn’t bad enough, she’s now in desperate need of financial assistance due to frequent hospitalizations and growing medical expenditures for kidney infections and other maladies.
Shirole, 85, has appeared in films such as Shaapit, The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and Made In China, as well as TV dramas such as Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuyein and Kis Des Mein Hai Meraa Dil. However, due to a variety of health issues, she is currently confined to her bed.
Actress Sunita Shirole Asks For Financial Help
The actress recalls, “I was working until the pandemic struck. During this time, I spent up all of my savings to get by. Unfortunately, I had to be admitted to the hospital at that time due to a kidney infection and severe knee pain. As if it wasn’t horrible enough, at the hospital I fell twice and fractured my left leg. I’m no longer able to bend it. I’ve had an angioplasty before, and I’m also dealing with other issues.”
Meanwhile, she is living at the home of actress Nupur Alankar. “I was staying as a paying guest in a flat, but I couldn’t pay for three months since I didn’t have any money left. CINTAA (Cine And TV Artistes’ Association) sent Nupur to assist me, which I am grateful for. For the time being, she has taken me to her home and hired a nurse to look after me. I’d like to get back to work because I need the money, but my leg is failing and I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to walk again. I need financial assistance till I can get back on my feet,” Shirole explains.
“I had made a lot during my heydays and would aid those in need. Never have I dreamed I’d find myself at a fork in the road of my life. I had put a large portion of my earnings into a firm that my husband and I had started. However, the warehouse caught fire, and we lost everything. In 2003, he passed away. Aaj main Duniya ke rehem aur karam par hoon. Surviving is quite challenging. I’m sorry I didn’t save money for a rainy day and didn’t buy a house in Mumbai,” she recalls, reminiscing about her past.
