Actor Savita Bajaj on oxygen asks for financial help to continue treatment
Savita Bajaj, known for films like Nadiya Ke Paar, Nishant, Nazrana and Beta Ho Toh Aisa, is in desperate need of financial support. The 79-year-old is currently in hospital after complaining of shortness of breath. Actor and CINTAA EC member Nupur Alankar, who had been by his side for four days, said Savita would need financial assistance to continue her treatment.
Savita Bajaj tested positive for Covid-19 and had to be hospitalized for 22 days. After her release, she found it difficult to breathe. At Nupur’s insistence, she went to see a doctor. Due to her condition, she was immediately admitted and put on oxygen.
“Over the past few months, I was in constant contact with her so she developed an emotional connection. From now on, I do my best to be around her. However, she needs immediate funds because the hospital could fire her if we can’t pay them, ”Nupur told indianexpress.com.
Doctors advised the lead actor not to strain his vocal cords.
In a previous interview with ETimes, Savita explained that there are no facilities for senior artists facing age-related health issues. She said: “I want someone to build a retirement home for actors like me who are alone. I don’t have my own home in Mumbai even after working for so many years. I live in a rental in a one-room kitchen in Malad. I pay Rs 7,000 as rent. I didn’t want to ask for money, but it’s going to be hard for me to deal with now.
The actor, with more than 50 films to his name, further shared that she decided to return to Delhi, her hometown, 25 years ago, but no one in her family was ready to support her. “I won a lot, I helped those who need it, but today I need help,” she said, adding: “My savings have dried up. I spent all the money on my failing health. I have developed serious breathing problems and am not sure how I will deal with it now.
