Actor Vineet Kumar Singh, who was struggling to arrange medicines for his family members and himself in Varanasi, recently found a saviour in his on-screen enemy actor Pankaj Tripathi. On Friday evening, the Mukkabaaz actor had taken to Twitter to share his plight and express his anger towards the handling of the pandemic situation in the country.
He had written, “I’m in benaras The drug (FabiFlu) is not available in the market. Private labs have been unable to perform the Covid test for five days. What should I give to the sick? Videos of your promises or your huge crowd rally, which you guys are constantly posting? Damn. Selfless blinds you. Wake up, the common man is dying”
“I want to tell those who doubt, that my family members are sick, some friends are sick, and I am also sick. The medicine has been found. Thanks for helping @TripathiiPankaj Brother. My character was shot by Sultan in Wasseypur, but in real life, the pill (medicine) is sent”, he wrote.
For the unversed, in the 2012 gangster film series Gangs of Wasseypur, Tripathi’s character, Sultan had murdered Singh’s character, Danish. He also appeared on screen with Tripathi in the 2020 film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The film also starred Janhvi Kapoor and Angad Bedi.
