It seems she’s been asked to vacate her plum seat in Chandigarh and make room for someone else." Reacting to this tweet, Anupam slammed the journalist and wrote, "This is how people like @namratazakaria can stoop to any level of degradation. The lady is not only unbelievably insensitive about #Kirron’s illness, she also uses this situation to declare her fantasy like a vulture and without giving any proof of her claims. Shame on you."

It's a tough treatment. She often says that the lockdown and COVID situation has 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. 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."
