Soni said in a recent interview that she has been living on one kidney since the year 2015 and both the kidneys had failed six years ago.

They are giving her medicines to bring down my creatinine, which was over nine when she got admitted, Soni said, adding that there’s much more on cards, when it comes to medical expenses. “Dialysis has not yet begun, that will take some time. We are also looking for a donor,” the actor said in her video.
Claiming that her funds are all dried up, Soni revealed her mother had a garments business, but in another unfortunate incident, her clothes and machines got all burnt some time ago when their house caught fire. “Sab kuch khatam ho gaya (Everything was destroyed). We are just hand-to-mouth now,” she shared about her financial woes.
Recently, actor Shagufta Ali too had shared about facing a financial crisis for more than four years on social media. She confessed to selling her car and jewelry to survive the pandemic. The actor said she wasn’t keeping well and needed work “to survive”.
