I asked help from friends in the industry as I could not walk without help,” Shagufta told PTI. ” “The epidemic has been difficult for everyone, especially for me. I have been passing through a lockout for the last four years,” she said.
The actor shared that she has the assistance of some of his peers in the industry, including Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai star Sumeet Raghavan, Savdhaan India host Sushant Singh and Neena Gupta, hosts of Sawdhan India, his co-star, and director of Saans.
“When they noticed out that I was moving through a financial crisis, Sumit and Sushant, who called me ‘Shagufta Aap’, arrived forward and helped me. Even the Sony and TV Artists Association (CITAA) contacted me.
But as per to reports. Shagufta has refused to help the CINTAA. I did not receive any assistance so far. CINTAA had reached out to me for assistance before. I couldn’t get help because the amount wasn’t enough for anything. I know they can only contribute a small amount, and it doesn’t help me.
