  • On 10 August 2021, a day after Anupam’s death, his brother Anurag Shyam claimed that Aamir Khan stopped taking their phone calls months after he promised to open a dialysis center in Pratapgarh. According to Anurag, Anupam was also disturbed as he could not meet his sick mother in Pratapgarh. His mother died a month earlier than Anupam’s death. Anurag said,

    Our family has been facing a lot. My mother died last month. Anupam was shocked that he could not go to Pratapgarh (where their mom stayed). Without a dialysis centre in the town, going there would have been a major health risk for Anupam. We urged for a dialysis centre in Pratapgarh and Anupam even went to Aamir Khan for the same.”
