SHOCKING! Saiyami Kher Develops Untreatable Cough After Running Marathon In Mumbai; Says, ‘Doc­tor Said It’s Because Of Pol­lu­tion’
Actress Saiyami Kher, who made her Bollywood debut with Mirzya (2018) alongside Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, has been an active sports player. She often runs marathons and takes part in many outdoor activities. During a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, the actress made a shocking revelation. She revealed that she developed a cough early in January, which she still has, after running a marathon in Mumbai.

Talking to HT Cafe, the entertainment supplement of the media publication, Saiyami expressed her concern over the increasing air pollution in Delhi and Mumbai. Being an outdoor person, she went on to wonder what would happen in the future. She said, “I run mara­thons and have grown up play­ing sports out­doors. I ran the Mum­bai mara­thon in Janu­ary and I have had a con­stant cough ever since. When I went to the doc­tor, he said it’s [because of] pol­lu­tion and told me to stop run­ning out­doors. Is this our future? What hap­pens to out­door activ­it­ies?”


The 31-year-old actress had recently taken to her social media handle to talk about the smog condition in Delhi during the India VS Australia match. Talking about the same, she told the publication, “I was watch­ing the Test match between India and Aus­tralia — that happened in Delhi recently — on TV. There was so much smog [that] I could barely see the play­ers. I have spoken to many crick­eters who have also com­plained about how hor­rible the con­di­tions are to play in.”

Saiyami went on to add how the pollution is worrisome for her as an actor, since they have to exert a lot during action sequences. Even if most of the shoots happen indoors and the exertion isn't constant, it is still not safe to breathe in the polluted air on a daily basis, explained the actress. She further added, “Cli­mate change is real. Extreme winter, sum­mer and mon­soon are all hap­pen­ing in front of our eyes. If this doesn’t frighten you, what will?”
