  • Following his demise on 9 August 2021, Anupam’s brother Anurag Shyam claimed that Aamir Khan had allegedly stopped picking up his calls, months after he promised to set up a dialysis center in Pratapgarh. Anurag also revealed that the actor was upset as he could not go to his hometown to meet his mother, who died a month before the actor’s demise. Anurag said,

    Our family is going through a lot. My mother passed away last month. Anupam was surprised that he could not go to Pratapgarh (where his mother stayed). Without a dialysis center in the city, going there would have been a big risk to Anupam’s health. We requested for a dialysis center in Pratapgarh and Anupam even went to Aamir Khan for this.
