Anurag Shyam, brother of late veteran actor Anupam Shyam, who is known for his work on the TV show ‘Mann Kee Awaaz: Pratigya’ and roles in films like ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and ‘Bandit Queen’, has made a statement that has shocked all and sundry, particularly Bollywood fans, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.
The actor had passed away a day before yesterday (on August 8, Sunday) following multiple organ failure.
Anurag has claimed that Bollywood super star Aamir Khan, who had worked with his brother Anupam in the 2001 film Lagaan, which was directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar, had promised them a dialysis center in Pratapgarh, but stopped picking their phone calls after some time.

Reportedly, then the late actor had been feeling unwell for the last few years and was also on dialysis. He was 63 when he passed away on Monday in Mumbai’s Lifeline Hospital.
As reported by an Indian newspaper, Anurag during a conversation with Aajtak, said that Anupam was upset as he could not meet their mother when she was ill at Pratapgarh. Since the Uttar Pradesh town had no dialysis center, Anupam couldn’t go there because it would have posed a health risk for him,” the newspaper quoted Anurag as saying.
He further said that his deceased brother had even gone to meet Aamir Khan in order to convince him to build a dialysis center at Pratapgarh. “Aamir Khan gave us the assurance but stopped picking our calls after a few months.”
Anurag said that the veteran actor was also worried about the rumours of his show being pulled off the air. Furthermore, he added that Anupam’s health had improved in the latter part of his life and doctors had even removed the ventilator. “However, his condition worsened after that and his blood pressure dropped sharply. It led to multiple organ failures and his death,” he concluded.
