Nawazuddin Loses His Young Sister

After an 8-year old stuggle with cancer, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s  youngest sibling  Syamalost the battle. She breathed her last on 7 December,liberating herself from unbearable pain and suffering.

 The  thing   about  grave  illnesses  is that they  affect the entire family profoundly. I remember when Nawaz first told me  about his sister’s illness he was trying hard  to keep it  out of the public eye.

“It is something  out of  the  blue. She’s just a  child and the youngest  in the family. I will do whatever  it takes to  cure her,” Nawaz had said, confiding that he had  moved his precious sister to Pune  for the  best treatment and  to keep her away from prying eyes.

Every time we spoke, I asked Nawaz  about his sister. He once said, “It(the illness) is  like a  cloud  covering all my success. Here I am going through a hard-earned phase of success. Every time I want to celebrate  my success I remember  that my baby sister  is critically ill. It kills all  my joy in life.”

Sadly  when the end came for Syama, Nawaz  was not in the country. I pray for the family to be strong in this  hour of unimaginable grief.

Nawaz  was recently seen  in the smalltown  romcom Motichoor Chaknachoor. He will next  be seen making his interntional  debut  as a leading man (he had a cameo in  the Dev Patel starrerLion) in Tannishtha Chatterjee’s Roam Rome Mein. Alas  his  little sister  won’t be here to witness her star brother’s move  to the  next level in his career.
