After fighting with cancer for nearly one year the late actor had posted about his deteriorating health condition on Facebook seeking monetary help. "It was only recently that he started a new homoeopathic medicine, following which, his condition worsened and we discontinued the medicines", Sitaram's wife was quoted by a daily after the Facebook post garnered attention.
