In a distressing turn of events, the renowned actress Pavala Syamala, who graced the silver screen with her debut in Tollywood through "Babai Abbai" in 1984 and continued to shine in supporting roles alongside top actors, finds herself in a deeply challenging situation. Struggling to make ends meet, she has expressed thoughts of desperation and despair, contemplating a dire act.

Pavala Syamala is best known for her remarkable performances in iconic films such as 'Khadgam,' 'Andhrawala,' 'Babai Hotel,' and 'Golimaar.' However, her financial condition has taken a severe downturn, forcing her to reside in an orphanage along with her daughter due to health issues. In a recent interview, she opened up about the individuals who have stepped forward to offer her much-needed assistance during this trying period.

Pavala Syamala is a member of the Movie Artist Association (MAA), and it was none other than the legendary Megastar Chiranjeevi who extended his helping hand. He contributed Rs 1 lakh for her MAA membership and an additional Rs 2 lakhs for her daughter's medical treatment. Nevertheless, Pavala Syamala has not been without her share of challenges, including misunderstandings with others offering help. She recounted a troubling incident involving character artist Karate Kalyani, who visited her home during a particularly difficult time. Pavala Syamala clarified that her house was not in the best condition due to her daughter's illness, which led to a misunderstanding with Kalyani. Pavala Syamala emphasized the difficulty of maintaining cleanliness in her home while her child was gravely unwell.

Pavala Syamala also raised concerns about Manchu Vishnu, the current President of MAA, alleging that after he became aware of her situation, he appointed an individual to provide assistance, but that person left, leaving her in a vulnerable position with no follow-up support. Despite these instances of assistance, Pavala Syamala's situation remains dire.

Recognizing the gravity of the situation, filmmakers Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have made a heartfelt plea for support on behalf of the veteran Telugu actor. They shared a fundraiser link on Twitter, urging the community to come to her aid during this time of extreme financial hardship.

In her current predicament, Pavala Syamala has found herself in a state of acute adversity. She has even had to part with her hard-earned awards and accolades to sustain herself. Every small contribution can make a world of difference to her. She currently resides in an old-age home in Pirzadiguda and struggles to cover even the basic rent. You can extend your help by transferring funds to her account with the following details: Neti Shyamala, A/c: 52012871059, IFSC: SBIN0020458, Srikrishna Nagar, Yusufguda Branch, Hyderabad. You can also reach out to her directly at Cell: 9849175713.

The appeal is not solely limited to financial support; any assistance, be it in the form of medical aid, food, clothing, or simply sharing this message with others, is invaluable. Let us come together as a compassionate community and support Pavala Syamala in her time of need, demonstrating the kindness and empathy that defines our humanity.
