Actor Chhavi Mittal has documented her entire journey since she was diagnosed with breast cancer on her social media and everyone has showered her with support and love and sent best wishes as she recuperates. The actor, who shared her journey in a bid to raise awareness about breast cancer, was trolled though but she called them out in her latest post.
The actor was told by the Instagram user that her recent post on cancer was a way to "gain sympathy". The actor shared a screenshot of the comment on July 5 which read, "Oh, ur again here to gain some sympathy and PR." In a response to the distasteful and insensitive comment, the actor wrote, "I didn't choose cancer, it chose me."
Chhavi Mittal Hits Back At Troll
Mittal, who shared a photo of the comment on her post, wrote, "This comment was there on my post yesterday where I talked about how I braced the cancer news… sitting amongst lots of other beautiful comments." She then added, "I didn’t choose cancer, it chose me. The emotional trauma that a cancer survivor goes through cannot be expressed in words or gestures. Even the ones closest to them cannot fathom it. And you can’t even imagine the courage it takes me to speak about it on a public forum."
The actor further noted, "Although the courage you have shown to troll a cancer fighter is also pretty commendable. And just like you cannot imagine my thoughts behind doing this… even I can’t imagine the amount of trauma you must have gone through in your life to feel feelings of this extent of negativity. Just like I share everything else on social media, I will share my prayer for you here too. May you get peace within."
On July 4, the actor in another post recalled how she dealt with when she was informed about her cancer diagnosis. She captioned the post, "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. Breast Cancer has taught me that only you can win your battle. Stay strong! Stay motivated."
The actor known for her roles in shows like Ek Chutki Aasma and Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann was diagnosed with breast cancer in April and underwent surgery for the same.
