Veteran actor Anupam Shyam died on Sunday night following multiple organ failure. His friend Yashpal Sharma and producer Ashoke Pandit confirmed the news of his death. Anupam was last seen in Mann Kee Awaaz: Pratigya 2.

Speaking with ANI, Yashpal Sharma said, “I got to know that he’s no more. So we rushed here and found he was still breathing. The doctor later declared him dead. He was hospitalised for 4 days. He had high blood sugar and used to take injections during shooting of his last film.”


Producer Ashoke Pandit also confirmed the news of Anupam Shyam’s death with a tweet on Sunday night. “Sad to know about the demise of one of the finest actors & a great human being #AnupamShyam due to multiple organ failure. My heartfelt condolences to his family. A great loss to the film & tv industry,” he said.

According to Indianexpress, Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2 producer Rajan Shahi said in a statement, “I am deeply saddened to hear about the demise of Anupam Shyamji. May his family get all the strength to sail through these difficult times. I remember when we started with Pratigya season 2, he was extremely happy to work again and play his favourite character Sajjan Singh. He was always so lively and full of enthusiasm and will be remembered for his remarkable performances. May his soul rest in peace.”

A leading daily reported Anupam had developed serious kidney issues. The actor was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai in July last year where he collapsed during a dialysis. Bollywood actors such as Manoj Bajpayee and Sonu Sood had helped the actor and his family.


His brother, Anurag Shyam told SpotboyE last year, “He has been keeping unwell for the last six months now. He has an infection in his kidney due to which we had admitted him to Hinduja Hospital back then and got him treated for almost one and half month. That time his health got fine but he was suggested dialysis, from time to time. But he decided to go for ayurvedic treatment as dialysis costs a lot. That didn’t help. He got breathless recently because of not doing dialysis. His chest was filled with water, so we again started his dialysis and he started getting relief.”

Several actors, film directors across film industries expressed their condolences on social media.

Monj Joshi expressed his condolences to the family, friends and admirers of the late actor. “Saddened by the demise of my friend and very talented actor Anupam Shyam ji. We have lost a great man. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. ॐ शांति”


Ashok Pandit wrote, “Sad to know about the demise of one of the finest actors & a great human being #AnupamShyam due to multiple organ failure . My heartfelt condolences to his family . A great loss to the film & tv industry . ॐ शान्ति !”

Shyam’s Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2 co-star Tina Philip took to Instagram to pay her last respects to the actor. She recalled being touched by his humility and zest for life on the first day on the sets of the Star Bharat show.

Actress Kashmera Shah shared a post about his sad demise and captioned it as, “So sad to see you go Anupam Shyamji. May your soul rest in peace.”


Having started his career with Shyam Benegal’s Sardari Begum, Anupam Shyam has worked in several Bollywood projects including Dil Se, Satya, Dushman, Slumdog Millionaire, Bandit Queen and Lagaan.
