Abdominal pain detected after
Sham Kaushal told that his condition was such that he did not know whether he would survive or not. In an interview with Times of India, Sham Kaushal said, ‘I came back after finishing the shooting of the film Lakshya in Ladakh. I was having stomach problem. The shooting of Shyam Benegal’s film Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was on and we were on a day off for Diwali. I was having a lot of pain in my stomach. Next day I reached Nanavati Hospital for checkup. I got admitted and they operated on my stomach. Earlier, I had gone to Nanavati Hospital for the problem of appendix, so the doctors knew about my problem.
hospitalized for 50 days
Sham Kaushal further explains, ‘I had an infection in my stomach. On examination it was found to be cancer. I was not sure whether I would survive or not. I didn’t tell this to anyone. I was in the hospital for 50 days. After that I went back to work. They kept testing me for a year but luckily the cancer did not spread. It’s been 19 years since that incident.
thoughts of suicide started coming
Sham Kaushal told that he used to have thoughts of suicide. He said, ‘I felt there was no chance of my survival. I had decided to commit suicide by jumping from the third floor as I could not live like that but I could not get out of bed as I had undergone stomach operation.
Work done in Anurag Kashyap’s film
Sham Kaushal told that when he was in the hospital, he got an offer from Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Black Friday’ but his health was not good, so he refused at first. Then Anurag said that he will shoot the film only when he comes back. Sham Kaushal told that when he returned after 50 days, he worked with Anurag.
