Actor Anupam Kher on May 28 slammed a journalist for saying that he is “changing his colours” because his wife Kirron Kher “has been asked to vacate her plum seat in Chandigarh” due to her illness.
Kirron was recently diagnosed with cancer.
In a tweet responding to the journalist, Anupam wrote that ‘people like’ her ‘can stoop to any level of degradation.’ He added, “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.”
The journalist had claimed, “So here’s why #AnupamKher is apparently changing colours. It’s his wife #KirronKher’s illness. It seems she’s been asked to vacate her plum seat in Chandigarh and make room for someone else.”
Confirming Kirron’s diagnosis, Anupam had earlier written on Twitter, “Just so that rumours don’t get the better of a situation Sikandar and I would like to inform everyone that Kirron has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. She is currently undergoing treatment and we are sure she will come out of this stronger than before. We are very blessed that she is being looked after by a phenomenal set of doctors. She’s always been a fighter and takes things head on.
