Actor Anupam Kher shared a health update about wife Kirron Kher, in a recent interview. On 7 May, Anupam had revealed Kirron's cancer diagnosis in a joint statement with their son Sikandar. He said that while the 'COVID situation has made things difficult', her health is improving. He added that Hollywood actor Robert De Niro checks up on Kirron from time to time.

Speaking to Times of India, he said, "Kirron’s health is improving. It’s a tough treatment. She often says that the lockdown and COVID situation have 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."

He added, "She is holding up fine. There are days when she is positive and then there are days when the chemotherapy impacts her state in many ways. We are all trying our best and she is doing it, too. The doctors do their job, but you have to keep your mental state strong to get past such a difficult treatment. She’s making every effort towards that, and so are we."

Anupam worked with Robert De Niro in David O. Russell's film Silver Linings Playbook. He revealed that De Niro had messaged him to inquire about Kirron's health when he learned the news. "I had texted him after seeing his ad with Roger Federer, and in response, all he wanted to know was my family’s well-being and how Kirron was doing," he further said.


The actor had earlier shared an update addressing 'negative news' surrounding Kirron's health. He'd assured that she was doing 'absolutely fine'. Kirron made her first public appearance since her diagnosis to get vaccinated with Anupam and family.
