Veteran film director S. Suleiman admitted in hospital

In a sad turn of events, veteran film director S. Suleiman has been admitted to hospital in Lahore, in a critical condition. According to family, Suleiman has been suffering from multiple ailments including diabetes and cardiac problems.

In such troubling times, Suleiman’s wife, Kathak dancer Panna Begum, also appealed to the government of Pakistan for financial support of the family.

“My husband has spent a wonderful time in the industry contributing a lot during his lifetime. But at this age, he needs the support of the government. Earlier I wrote to the Prime Minister, President, Governor Punjab, Cheif Minister Punjab regarding financial support but no one listened to me. I don’t know where I can go for support at this age. During the last 25 years, I worked a lot in raising funds for Imran Khan’s cancer hospital. However now when I am in need, no one is there to listen to me. There was a time when the government would have done something for a great director. However today that is not the case.  I feel completely helpless and suffering for my husband’s treatment,” said Panna Begum.
