Gauthami suffered from breast Cancer

Gauthami, the yesteryear georgeous actress was the hottest heroine during the 90’s and has acted with all the top actors of the period including Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan.

Gauthami has paired up on screen with Kamal in Kuruthipunal,Nammavar,Thevar Magan and Apoorva Sagodharargal, the duo have been living together in real life too since 2004 after Kamal divorced Sarika.

The actress who is enjoying her second innings by acting in TV Serials and hosting TV shows narrates her experience of fighting against breast cancer in a recent interview.

For the past few years, reports have been doing rounds that actress Gauthami has been affected with breast cancer. The actress neither denied nor confirmed this. For the first time, Gauthami has now conceded that she was indeed struggling to cope up with breast cancer for the past few years.

“Many a time, I had slept sleepless nights when I would simply keep on crying. I was rattled in the initial stage. Kamal’s support and my well-wishers’ good wishes have helped me tide over the crises and set an example to others that breast cancer can be overcome if one is willing to have patience and determination.

I feel it’s my duty to instill trust and confidence in the minds of all those who have been afflicted by breast cancer. I am going to involve myself full-time in this endeavour in the near future,” Gauthami has reportedly told a vernacular magazine in her most candid interview till date.

It is worth mentioning here that Gauthami was honored by Ushalakshmi Breast Cancer Foundation on Women’s day (March 8), for her exceptional determination and courage that helped her to overcome breast cancer.

Gauthami has also added that it was basically because of her daughter Subbulakshmi’s desire that she decided to make a comeback to ‘acting’.

    I really feel that Gautami is so cool to do all this stuff. I think Kamal sir is very nice to do that for her. Obviously, her family must have supported her. I think that’s so sweet. She really sets an example, don’t you think?
