Ponnambalam, a famous actor from South Indian film industry opened about how Telugu Superstar helped him with Rs. 45 lakh for his kidney treatment. The actor, in an interview with a famous YouTube channel, had said that he was expecting only a small amount but the help provided by the actor through his daughter-in-law was huge.
Ponnambalam has been suffering from kidney disease for over a year, and he appealed to his friends and colleagues in the industry to help him with the financial expenses of his medical treatment. In a touching gesture, his niece and short film director, Jaganathan, volunteered to donate his kidney to his uncle. The surgery was performed successfully on February 10, at a private hospital in Chennai.
According to reports, Ponnambalam is now recovering well, and he has expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped with his kidney surgery through his PR Manager. It’s an inspiring story of how the film industry came together to support one of its own in a time of need.
Fortunately, several actors, including Chiranjeevi, Sarathkumar, Dhanush, Kamal Haasan, Arjun, Vijay Sethupathi, and Prakash Raj, among others, came forward to donate money for Ponnambalam’s medical treatment. Director KS Ravikumar also contributed to the cause. Ponnambalam expressed his heartfelt thanks to all of them, stating that their support and love gave him hope and the will to fight on.
Ponnambalam’s journey in the film industry began as a stuntman and then later transitioned into an actor with the 1988 Tamil film ‘Kaliyugam.’ He then acted in several Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi films, but his role opposite Sarathkumar in the 1994 Tamil film ‘Nattamai’ is the most popular one.
According to a recent report, Ponnambalam revealed that Telugu Superstar Chiranjeevi sent him Rs. 45 lakh as soon as he sent a message to him. The actor also said that Dhanush helped him financially while speaking on the phone.
Now, in a recent interview with a famous YouTube channel, Ponnambalam opened on how he received such huge help from the Telugu Superstar. “I just sent him a message and received a call from him within 10 minutes. When he asked what problem I’m suffering from, I replied to him saying that I’m suffering from kidney failure and didn’t want to live anymore” Ponnambalam said in the interview.
“Don’t talk that way. In Chennai, there is Appollo hospital, right?? Do you want to get treatment there or do you want to get treatment in Hyderabad??” Chiranjeevi asked Ponnambalam, according to the actor’s statement.
“I said to him that I have all my relatives are here. He promised to help me, saying that he will look after everything. Initially, I thought he would help me doing a dialysis. But he wouldn’t even let me pay for the application form of the hospital” Ponnambalam said in the interview.
“”He spent nearly Rs. 40-45 lakh. Ram Charan Sir’s wife is the Managing Director there. She came for my treatment directly to pay the fees. My head was spinning. During the first day, they made a test for Rs. 80,000 and I got shocked” he further said.
