From people losing jobs to businesses being shut, such news has become a regular since the covid-19 pandemic began. Entertainment industry is no different. So many actors have had to take up odd jobs to manage a living because there isn’t enough work. Among those facing tough times is actor Resham Arora from the blockbuster film Agneepath. Amitabh Bachchan co-star in an interview with ETimes shared talked about his financial struggles and how things have got worse since the lockdown. He told, “There is absolutely no work for me. This has been the state ever since the lockdown began. While people say ”cheezein khul rahi hai (things are opening up now)’, I still don’t see sufficient work opportunities available.” The 71-year-old actor also shared that he met with an accident a few years ago, which also affected his financial situation.
Recalling the incident, the actor said, “I fell off a train a couple of years ago, and then was bitten in the leg by some strange insect at a shoot for Ashwini Dheer’s show Chidiya Ghar, which hindered my movement for some time. Being in a precarious condition, tragedy further struck me when my wife’s eyesight started deteriorating; she contracted acute glaucoma.”
The actor added that he is looking for work and that film body CINTAA (Cine And TV Artistes Association) too has helped him. “I am seriously in need of work. CINTAA has helped me a bit but that’s definitely not enough to keep us in good condition. I am broke. I need financial aid,” he told ETimes.
Resham Arora is best-known for making a brief appearance in Amitabh Bachchan’s film Agneepath. He featured as a doctor who treats Mithun Chakraborty. Other than that, he also starred as a jailor in the film Khuda Gawah.
