- Arjun lost his mother to cancer and since then he is a strong supporter to raise awareness against the disease
- He associates himself with Cancer Patients Aid Association to support 100 couples from an underprivileged background
Bollywood: Arjun Kapoor has seen cancer from so close that he took up the initiative to support underprivileged cancer couples in the month of love. He lost his mother to the deadly disease and so, he knows the pain of losing a dear one.
“The pandemic has taught all of us the importance of helping one another and spreading love whenever we can. We all look forward to celebrating Valentine’s month in February, to make our loved ones feel special. But I have decided to do something different, this time”, he said.
Apart from lending support to cancer patients, he also urged others to come forward for help. He said, “By supporting their yearly medical treatment worth Rs 1 lakh per patient that takes care of expenses for chemotherapy and radiotherapies, surgeries and medicines, we can save them from draining out financially”.
He further added, “Along with Cancer Patients Aid Association, I am supporting medical treatment for 100 underprivileged couples who are impacted by cancer, which means one partner is battling this deadly disease as the other one is supportive in every step of this fight”.
The actor was last seen in Panipat and his next few projects include ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ with Parineeti Chopra and ‘Bhoot police’ that also star Saif Ali khan, Ali Fazal, and Fatima Sana Shaikh in the leads. On the personal front, he is dating Arbaaz khan’s ex-wife Malaika Arora.
