Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's younger sister Syama Tamshi Siddiqui passed away on Friday. She suffered from cancer for the last eight years. Syama breathed her last in Pune. The actor, along with his brother Faizuddin, is currently shooting in the United States.
In October last year, Nawazuddin shared his sister's adverse condition on social media while wishing her on her 25th birthday. Syama was diagnosed with breast cancer ever since she was 18. According to media reports, her funeral will take place at the actor’s ancestral village in Uttar Pradesh's Budhana where the entire family is present. The funeral is expected to take place on Sunday.
