Sikandar Kher also shared the same statement on his Instagram handle.
Anupam Kher’s statement came a day after the Chandigarh BJP chief Arun Sood in a press conference revealed that Kirron has been battling cancer since last year. “People had been going all out to use words like ‘missing’, ‘gumshuda’ for Kher. I just want to announce that she is suffering from multiple myeloma and undergoing treatment for the same at Mumbai’s hospital,” he said, as per Indian Express.
The BJP leader also said that Kirron Kher had to go for her chemotherapy regularly after being diagnosed with blood cancer. He said, “She had suffered a broken left arm at her Chandigarh house on November 11 last year. After her medical tests at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh, she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The disease had spread to her left arm and right shoulder. For treatment, she had to go to Mumbai on December 4.”
