Baitul Mal to release Rs1m for Nusrat Ara’s treatment

As soon as the news of Nusrat Ara’s condition broke out, many artists called for artists to unite and raise donations, others demanded to start a actor’s union to serve stars which have been forgotten.

Pakistan Baitul Mal (PBM) announced on Saturday that it would provide Rs1 million for the treatment of actor Nusrat Ara.

Barrister Abid Waheed Sheikh, the managing director of PMB, told The Express Tribune that a separate sum of Rs50,000 would also be given to Nusrat for her daily expenses. Sheikh said according to his knowledge Nusrat had a stroke and the doctors at the hospital have started treating her.

As soon as I learnt about her illness and other dilemmas, I announced Rs1 million for her treatment besides awarding her Rs50,000 in financial assistance. Now she has been admitted to CMH and she is getting the treatment she requires,” said Sheikh.

Nusrat Ara played the role of Bil Batoori in Ptv drama Ainak Wala Jinn. However, after the serial ended she has struggled to make ends meet and will hopefully get to lead a better life.
