We did not hear about Mahesh Manjrekar’s cancer till just now when he has announced that he is cancer free. You must all know that Mahesh has been working on his next film “Antim: The Final Truth” starring Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma. We have seen clippings and photos from the film and it looks like a winner. But what we did not relaize was that Mahesh was undergoing chemotherapy while shooting the last leg of the film. He was diagnosed with urinary bladder cancer while the film was being shot. After undergoing chemotherapy for 2 months, Mahesh has been told that he is now cancer-free!
Talking about working while undergoing treatment, Mahesh said, “I had to take chemotherapy first before going in for a huge surgery. During the shoot, I was under chemotherapy but it didn’t affect me that much. I have realised that work, passion drive you. I always think positive. When I was told I have cancer, it didn’t shock me. I accepted it. There are so many people who get cancer, (but) they fight and survive. So it didn’t bother me too much. All of them (the team) were caring and helping, there was no problem. I was quite comfortable. Both of them (Salman, Aayush) were very supportive.” We have also heard that Mahesh has lost 35 kilos during this stint with cancer. We are glad that you were able to beat it Mahesh, keep going strong!
