Mahabharat actor Satish Kaul seeks help from industry: I am struggling for medicines and groceries
Veteran actor Satish Kaul, who played the role of Devraj Indra in BR Chopra’s ‘Mahabharat’, is struggling with a financial crisis. Kaul is a known name in Bollywood and Punjabi cinema is currently going through a rough phase in his life. The nation-wide lockdown has only made the situation worse for him.
Speaking to PTI Satish Kaul said, “I’m staying in a small rented place in Ludhiana. I was staying in an old age home earlier but then I’m here at this place with my good samaritan Satya Devi. My health is ok, I’m doing fine but the lockdown has made matters worse. I’m struggling with medicines, groceries, and basic needs. I appeal to the industry people to help me. I got so much love as an actor, I need some attention now as a human in need,” Kaul told PTI.
Satish Kaul had also opened his acting school in Punjab. But the project failed.
He said, “It came to a halt and whatever work I was doing later was affected after I fractured my hip bone in 2015. For two and a half years, I was bed-ridden in the hospital. Then I had to check in to an old age home where I stayed for two years. Right now, I wish I am able to buy a decent place of my own where I can stay.”
Satish Kaul has featured in more than 300 Punjabi and Hindi films. Some of his notable films include ‘Aunty No. 1’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Khooni Mahal’, and ‘Iljam’. He also worked in Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Vikram Betal’.
