Pardes-star Mahima Chaudhry has been battling breast cancer. In a heartbreaking video posted by Anupam Kher on his social media handle on June 9, the actress revealed that she has been undergoing treatment for her ailment for which she lost her hair. In his post, Anupam wrote, ‘You are my Hero’.
In the video, Mahima explained how Anupam called her from America for a role in his film. “Surprisingly, after I lost my hair, I am getting a lot of calls for webseries and this and that. And I am like, ‘why am I getting calls now’,” she said in the video. She said it was Anupam’s America’s number and hence she thought it would be urgent.
