Actor Ishwar Thakur, who plays the character of Anurag in the TV show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, has been out of work for two years now owing to health issues. For several years, he has also been taking care of his brother who has been undergoing treatment for Schizophrenia at a hospital in Mumbai.
In an interview with ETimes, Ishwar said, "My brother had been undergoing treatment for Schizophrenia 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. We cannot keep him at home, so he's at an ashram for which we have to pay rent.''
the actor also shared how he managed to look after his brother and revealed Sonu Sood’s foundation helped him. He said, “As you know I am not well and have been out of job for two years, I could not afford to pay the rent for the ashram. I reached out to Sonu Sood’s foundation. They have now paid the accommodation fee for three months for my brother."
He further added, “My producer Binaifer Kohli and writer Sanad Verma and other actors like Kavita Kaushik, Kiku Sharda and writer Manoj Santoshi have also helped me."
The actor also shared that he is still coping with his health issues and assured that he will return to Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain show. He expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the people who have helped him.
He said, “My health is still not good. I am taking Ayurvedic medicines for my kidney problem. I will go for my leg surgery after which I will return to my 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."
Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, also stars Aasif Sheikh, Rohitash Gaud and Shubhangi Atre.
