At the age of 63, veteran actor Anupam Shyam who was playing the role of Thakur Sajjan Singh in the show Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2, passed away on Sunday night. The actor was admitted to hospital due to a kidney infection last week, died on Sunday night, following multiple organ failures, his friend actor Yashpal Sharma said.

Speaking with a news channel, Yashpal Sharma said, “I got to know that he’s no more. So we rushed here and found he was still breathing. The doctor later declared him dead. He was hospitalized for four days. He had high blood sugar and used to take injections during the shooting of his last film.”

Last year in March, the actor was hospitalized after he developed serious kidney issues. His brother had even appealed for monetary help as they were struggling to pay the hospital bills.


Recovering from the illness, the actor had to undergo dialysis on a regular basis. He got back to work when Mann Kee Awaaz season 2 was launched in 2021.

Apparently, he used to complete his shoot and then go for dialysis, thrice a week.
In his nearly three-decade-long career, Shyam featured in films like “Satya”, “Dil Se”, “Lagaan”, “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” and received critical acclaim for his role as Thakur Sajjan Singh on “Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya”, which aired in 2009 on Star Plus.

He resumed his work to play Thakur Sajjan Singh again for the second installment of the show because he didn’t want to let his fans down in the second season.

In an interview the actor said, “Zindagi ki jung ladh raha tha, wahan se aa gaye hain ab. Now with the show Pratigya, I want to entertain the audience again.”

His colleagues from the entertainment industry also took to social media to express their condolences.
