TV artist Rajesh Kareer, best known for playing actress Shivangi Joshi's father in TV show Begusarai, has shared a heart-wrenching video on Facebook, asking for monetary help.
Talking about his suffering, he said in the video, "I am an artist and hoping that a lot of people must be recognising me. If I will not say then this life will get very heavy on me."
Rajesh is among the many artistes who have been hit by the Coronavirus lockdown, since shooting and production across the entertainment industry has been stalled.
"I really need help as my condition is not good. I have been staying with my family here in Mumbai from last 16 years. Since a long time I haven't got any work and now form last three months no shoots are happening and we even don't know when will it start. If people can help me with 300-400 rupees each will also be of a great help as I want to go back Punjab. I want live and don't want to give up on life," he added.
Rajesh also shared his bank details, as he tried to fight back his tears while talking in the video. "Doston main bas itna kehna chahta hoon aap sabse main zindagi se harna nahi chahta. Bas yahi ek tarika bacha hai mere pass please help me. Bank details and phone number share kar raha hoon aapke saath. Rajesh Kareer, Bank Of Baroda...51480100003627...IFSC BARBONAITHA...Branh Naigaon (East). Mob-9821282683," he said.
Begusarai (March 2015- June 2016) also starred actors like Shweta Tiwari, Vishal Aditya Singh and Veebha Anand.
