Actor Anupam Kher has been keeping his fans and those of his wife Kirron Kher’s up to speed about her health. She is presently undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. Kirron is improving, according to Anupam, but the chemotherapy is challenging.
The actor, in an interview with The Times of India, said, “Kirron’s health is improving. It’s a tough treatment. She often says that the lockdown and COVID situation has made things difficult. Patients going through this treatment need something to distract themselves. She can’t go out or meet people, but the good part is that Kirron is on her way to better health.”
Anupam added although his wife is fine on most days, there are days “when the chemotherapy impacts her state in many ways.” He said they’re all trying our best, and she is too.
The Special 26 actor strongly believes that one must maintain a healthy state of mind in order to deal with such a tough treatment, and his wife is making “every effort” to do so.
In April, Anupam opened up publicly regarding Kirron’s illness, saying, “Just so that rumours don’t get the better of a situation Sikandar and I would like to inform everyone that Kirron has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. She is currently undergoing treatment and we are sure she will come out of this stronger than before. 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.”
Anupam Kher left his American TV series ‘New Amsterdam’ after the diagnosis to be with his wife during these trying times.
