In the video, the actress shared that she showed no symptoms and found out about the lump during an annual checkup. Further talking about going through chemotherapy, she revealed that the women and a young boy coming for the therapy alongside her gave her the courage to stay strong. She shared, “I wasn’t very brave during the treatment and was constantly weeping and crying, till I heard the voice of a little boy. I just looked at him during my half chemo and just to make conversation with him I said, “Arre aapki dawai itni hi hai, meri toh itni saari hai”. “Isi se toh thik honge”, he replied. I then said, “Haa but fir main aisi hi das leti rehti hu, mujhe bohot takleef hoti hail” to which he replied, “Mujhe bhi. Main paanch din leta rehta hu, fir main khelne jaata hu”. So, I was like wow.”

Mahima Chaudhary who was crowned Miss India in 1990 is known for her extensive filmography with films like Dhadkan, Lajja and Pardes.
