Bollywood actress turned politician Kirron Kher has unfortunately been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood cells. Kirron Kher is the wife of another Bollywood legend Anupam Kher.
The Devdas actress, who is also a member of parliament from the city of Chandigarh, had been missing from duties for quite a while, with people questioning her absence. The husband Kher, and the BJP leader Arun Sood both announced on Wednesday that Kher was suffering from multiple myeloma.
While the fellow politician said,
“People had been going all out to use words like ‘missing’ or ‘gumshuda’ for Kher. I just want to announce that she is suffering from multiple myeloma and undergoing treatment at Mumbai’s hospital,” putting an end to the rumors.
“We have been informed that though she is out of danger, she has to go regularly for her chemotherapy. In one week, she has to visit hospital for two hours, and the next week she has to be hospitalized for a night. This is apart from the other treatment that is going on at her place.”
Anupam Kher made the announcement on Twitter,
Anupam Kher added,
“We are very blessed that she is being looked after by a phenomenal set of doctors. She’s always been a fighter and takes things head-on. She’s all heart and that’s why so many people love her.”
“She is well on her way to recovery and we thank everyone for their support and love,” he said.
The Khers found out about the diagnosis on November 11 when Kirron was rushed to the hospital for a broken arm despite not falling down or getting a fracture. A PET scan revealed a multiple myeloma diagnosis in her left shoulder and right arm.
