Kher told Time Of India how Kirron Kher is going through chemotherapy, and it becomes very stressful for her sometimes. He added that the current situations around her often impact her mental health. She is doing okay on some days, and is stressed on other days, revealed the actor. He added that his wife finds it difficult to cope up with the added stress of the lockdown and COVID situation, but they make sure that they keep her mental health in check.

“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,” said Kher.

“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,” he continued.

He went on to talk about how veteran Hollywood actor, Robert De Niro, also checks up on her from time to time. “Yes, I have been in touch. Robert had messaged me when he learned about Kirron’s health. He had also sent me a video to wish me on my birthday, and he keeps checking on Kirron’s health every few days,” revealed Kher. De Niro and Kher worked together in Silver Linings Playbook.
