Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.
The actress who is known for her work in films Sarfarosh, Major Saab, Duplicate and Hum Saath-Saath Hain, was last seen in Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara in 2013. She has even judged several TV reality shows.
As soon as the news broke, her colleagues and friends from Bollywood wished her speedy recovery.
