SP Balasubramanyam bowed to Hari Kishan the actor and mimicry artist in appreciation for his craft in the popular programme Paduta Teeyaga recently. Similarly, Brahmanandam, MS Narayana, VenuMadhav have always praised his talent. But there is another side of his success story.
Both the kidneys of the actor had failed functioning and though his wife had donated a kidney to him that too had stopped functioning . Now he has to undergo treatment every alternate day which costs him Rs 5000 per sitting.
In fact Hari Kishan is counted among the leading mimicry artistes in the country today. Apart from accolades, he was won many awards and rewards in his illustrious career. Despite such illness, he continues to do shows and make people laugh in India and abroad. He has also done numerous shows abroad and has a good following there.
Before dedicating his life to doing mimicry shows he worked as a lecturer in the past.
Kudos to a man who continues to be his lively self despite his debilitating illness.
