Sitaram was suffering from a three-year long battle with kidney and lung cancer. The actor who was bed ridden for almost a year, had recently taken to his Facebook account asking for monetary help in order to afford proper treatment for kidney and lung cancer, as he was financially compromised. He wrote, “Brothers, please help me, I am suffering from cancer, your actor brother, Sitaram Panchal.”
His wife Uma spoke to a leading daily about his deteriorating health condition. She had said, “Ever since the cancer was detected in January 2014, he has taken Ayurvedic treatment. It was only recently that he started a new homeopathic medicine, following which, his condition worsened and we discontinued the medicines.”
It was only yesterday that the actor celebrated his twenty-sixth wedding anniversary. His son Rishabh Panchal and wife Uma Panchal had even shared a picture on Facebook.
The actor, despite the Haryana Government offering a sum of rupees 5 lakh, refused to switch to allopathic treatment and continued with his Ayurvedic medicines.
Sitaram, made his Bollywood debut in 1994 with Bandit Queen. He was best known for his work in films like Peepli Live, Pan Singh Tomar, The Legend of Bhagat Singh and Slumdog Millionaire.
