Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain is among the most popular sitcoms on & TV. Actor Ishwar Thakur has been playing the character of Anurag in Binaifer Kohli’s show for several years. The actor has been out of work for two years due to health reasons.
In addition, the actor has been taking care of his brother who has been kept at Thane Mental Hospital. He recently shared about getting financial assistance for his mentally ill brother. The actor received aid from the team of Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain and Sonu Sood‘s foundation.
Reportedly, Ishwar, “My brother had been undergoing treatment at the hospital for over 20 years. Earlier the hospital would release him in six months but now it’s in three months. He gets violent and beats us up. I have been unwell for two years and my mother is a heart patient. Under such circumstances, we cannot keep him at home. Therefore, he’s at an ashram for which we have to pay rent.”
Furthermore, Ishwar shared that the hospital is now not ready to take Ishwar’s brother back. Since Ishwar is not keeping good health and has been out of a job for two years, he couldn’t afford to pay the rent for the ashram. Hence, he reached out to Sonu Sood’s foundation. They have now paid the accommodation fee for three months for his brother. He expressed gratitude for the same.
Ishwar has been lucky in getting support from his co-actors and producers in the last two years. His co-actors from Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain like Saumya Tandon, Subhangi Atre, Asif Shaikh, and almost the entire star cast have done their bit to support him financially.
He said, “There have been several people who have helped me. They are cameraman Raja Dada, director Shashank Bali, make-up man Samip Jukar, and director Rajan Waghdhare. My producer Binaifer Kohli and writer Manoj Santoshi have also extended help. Additionally, other actors like Sadanand Verma, Kiku Sharda, Kavita Kaushik have helped me. And Nupur Alankar of CINTAA spoke to senior actress Asha Parekh whose NGO sends me Rs 5000 for medication every month. Everyone has extended a huge help as I have several health complications.”
Ishwar shared that he has a kidney problem and has to undergo surgery on his leg. He said, My leg is still not good. I am taking Ayurvedic medicines for the kidney problem. I will go for my leg surgery after which I will return to the Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain show. But I really want to thank everyone who came to my rescue and helped me in my trying times.”
