Actor Faraaz Khan who was seen in films like ‘Mehendi’ and ‘Fareb’ has been diagnosed with brain infection and pneumonia. According to a report in Times of India, the former actor is currently battling for his life and he has been admitted to an ICU in a Bengaluru hospital.
Faraaz’s younger brother Fahmaan Khan, who is also an actor, is now raising funds for his treatment. Actress Pooja Bhatt came forward to help and she even asked netizens to help the ailing actor.
Revealing about his brother’s ailment, Fahmaan told Times of India that he was suffering from cough and chest infection for nearly a year. When his condition worsened he was admitted to a hospital. Later when he also suffered from three consecutive seizures he was shifted to the emergency ward.
Talking about his brother’s survival chances and their financial condition, Fahmaan told the daily, “Bhai has been on a ventilator for the past five days and as per doctors, there are 50 % chances of his survival. While he is responding to treatment, he is still unconscious. For further treatment, we need Rs 25 lakhs. Most of our savings has already been spent on the treatment and I have no idea what is going to happen or how we are going to manage the finances for his treatment. Due to the pandemic, everyone is going through a financial crisis, but we cannot lose hope and so, we are seeking support through fundraising.”
Urging netizens to come forward and help Faraaz in the time of need, Pooja Bhatt shared a link of the fundraising platform and wrote, “Please share and contribute if possible. I am. Would be grateful if any of you can as well.”
