Dia told Kareena that it was due to early detection that her mother was able to skip radiation and chemotherapy. “This happened with my mother last year. She was diagnosed with first-stage cancer. And because of early detection, we could take her to the hospital and they conducted a mastectomy on her. And thankfully, touch wood, she didn’t even have to go through chemo or radiation. So she is cancer free,” revealed the Sanju actress.
