Actor Seema G Nair at first tried to keep it quiet. Her young colleague has brain tumour and is in a hospital in Thiruvananthapuram, needing some urgent financial help for her treatment. Seema asked through messages among circles she knew for help. But two days ago, Seema, an actor who has worked in over a hundred television series in Malayalam and Tamil and in movies too, revealed in a video that her young colleague, Sharanya Sasi is not well, and needs help.
“That’s true. The tumour came to her six years ago, and she needed many surgeries through the years it kept revisiting her. Only seven months ago, she had her sixth surgery but she became unwell again a few days ago and is in the Sree Chithra Thirunal Hospital in Thiruvananthapuram. She had the surgery yesterday but needs to go through a scanning today. Only then the doctors can say anything,” Seema tells TNM on a call.
She has known Sharanya for a long time. Sharanya has acted in films and serials for years, since first appearing in Doordarshan in 2006. In Malayalam, she has worked in films like Chotta Mumbai, Thalappavu, Chacko Randaman etc and in Tamil, she played the female lead in Pachai Engira Kaathu. She has also been active in television series in Malayalam and Tamil and even in Telugu. She was working in the Malayalam series Chandanamazha when the tumour came again for the seventh time in her life.
Sharanya’s mother, waiting outside the ICU, says she cannot speak just then and directs us to Seema G Nair for details. Seema’s plea has been taken up on crowdfunding site milaap.org, where a fundraising campaign for Sharanya is now live.
“They have collected about Rs 30,000 and it will be sent to Sharanya. If anyone wants to directly donate to Sharanya, they can do so to her account,” Seema says.
