The family of Bollywood singer-composer Aadesh Shrivastava, who is battling with cancer, says they are not seeking financial help from anyone, but everyone's blessings.
His brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit, from the Jatin-Lalit duo, said that the family is not reeling under a financial crunch, as media reports are indicating.
“We are not seeking help from the industry. We don’t need money, we need prayers from people. We don't need funds and we have never asked for funds from anybody,” Lalit told IANS over phone.
Shrivastava, whose cancer has relapsed for the third time, is undergoing treatment in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here since the last 44 days.
Lalit also refuted a news report claiming that the family has turned to a Himachal Pradesh-based Tibetan monk Yeshi Dhonden, known for using ancient Tibetan herbal therapies to cure the disease.
