Television actress Anaya Soni, who has worked in shows like 'Naamkaran', 'Adalat', 'Ishq Mein Marjawan', and ‘Crime Patrol’ to name a few is seeking financial help amid severe health crisis. She stated that all of her savings have dried up to look after herself.
Anaya told ETimes that both her kidneys failed since 2015 and she's been living on the one donated by her father. However, this one has deteriorated and she's been on the hunt for a fresh kidney transplant.
The financial strains are a result of lack of work opportunities and the fact that her house caught on fire which affected the garments business of her mother. "Sab kuch khatam ho gaya," she said.
Anaya is currently admitted to at Mumbai's Holy Spirit Hospital. The dialysis is yet to begin, and she is still on the lookout for a donor.
Anaya has also worked in films like ‘Take it Easy' (2015) and 'Hai Apna Dil Toh Awaara' (2016).
About a week ago, popular actor Shagufta Ali revealed that she's been battling depleting finances due to poor health and struggling to find work in an industry to which she has dedicated over three decades of her life.
Best known for her work on TV shows like ‘Saans’, ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ and ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’, Ali was diagnosed with diabetes six years ago, around the same time when the roles started drying up.
The 54-year-old actor said she has been out of work since 2018. Her last acting role was a cameo in the show ‘Bepannaah’.
She initially tried to manage the situation on her own by selling off her car and jewellery to pay mounting medical expenses, but later reached out to the industry publicly as she was left with no other option.
