Actor, and politician Kirron Kher recently recalled how PM Narendra Modi called her many times during her cancer treatment and asked her to not worry about her political responsibilities. In April 2021, Kirron's husband-actor Anupam Kher confirmed her cancer diagnosis and said that she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer.
Recalling her battle with cancer, Kirron told Modi Story in Hindi, “As you know, I was not keeping well last year. During my treatment in Mumbai, PM Modi called me twice and thrice for my health update. PM Modi inspired me so much during my treatment. I was concerned about my absence from the parliament. I expressed this with Parliamentary Affairs Minister as well on a call, PM Modi told me not to worry about anything and look after my health only. He also said that I will be fine. I was so relaxed after talking to PM Modi. Iss mamle me unka jo dil hai na woh bohot naram hai (He is a very soft-hearted person).”
“PM Modi often gets emotional. He was also emotional when he was giving farewell speech in Rajya Sabha for Ghulam Nabi Azad. He talked about Gujarati people killed by terrorists in Kashmir. He got emotional and was teary-eyed. All these things tell us that PM is a tough administrator but also a soft, sensitive human being,” the MP added. Kirron is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). She is a Lok Sabha member -- Member of Parliament from Chandigarh.
Kirron Kher has starred in several films, including Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Devdas, Khubsoorat, Dostana, Rang De Basanti among others. She was a judge on India's Got Talent, after completing her cancer treatment.
