The actor was quoted saying, “I have earlier asked for Salman’s help and he came to my rescue. He helped me with my treatment in Mumbai for six to eight months and later he took care of my living in Goa. Today, once again I am in trouble and asking for his help. I don’t feel like pleading for help each time from Salman but no one else comes forward to support and help except Salman. I am once again in trouble Salman, please help me.”
Even though Pooja’s symptoms are similar to that of COVID-19, she said she can’t contract the virus and die so soon. The actor mentioned that she doesn’t feel it’s right to borrow money to get herself tested.
Before returning to Goa, Pooja had been living in Mumbai where she also shot for a film. She said that she used whatever earnings she made from the film in running the house and there’s no more money left for her to survive.
