Mahima Chaudhry battling Breast Cancer, Anupam Kher shares the News!!
Sharing a video of Mahima Anupam Kher wrote a caption, "Story of Mahima Chaudhry's courage and cancer. I called Mahima Chaudhry a month back from the US to play a very important role in my 525th film The Signature. Our conversation turned to her discovering that she has breast cancer. What followed is in this candid conversation between us.
Her attitude will give hope to so many women all over the world. She wanted me to be part of her disclosing it. She calls me an eternal optimist but dearest Mahima ." Anupam Kher added in his post, "You are my hero! Friends, send her your love, warmth, wishes, prayers, and blessings. She is back on sets where she belongs. She is ready to fly. All those producers/directors out there! Here is your opportunity to tap on her brilliance! Jai ho to her ."
Anupam Kher was seen asking questions to Mahima about her treatment. She had Undergone Chemopathy and was seen sporting a shaved head, which detailed her cancer journey.
She said she was surprised by the number of calls she received to star in projects after losing her hair to the illness, stating, “Surprisingly, ever since I lost my hair, I have been getting a lot of calls for shows, web series.
And I was like, ‘Oh my god, why now? I don’t even have hair’ So I didn’t tell them. And I told you because I couldn’t lie to you. I don’t know, I just get so emotional,” she said as she broke down on camera.
Mahima's Reaction when she found out about the disease:
I did not have any symptoms, it was just an annual check-up. I was getting my regular tests done, and the person who was doing the tests said I should go and get this checked. They said you have to get chemotherapy (done), and I started crying. And my sister was like ‘it’s treatable.’ She was like ‘why are you behaving like a 17th-century woman?’ But then you are just so terrified of the word cancer, which is why I didn’t share it with my parents at first because they are so vulnerable.”
