MUMBAI—Gauahar Khan, who was last seen in “Begum Jaan,” has a very strong message for women. Recently Khan took to Twitter to share a very important message: that it is a myth that breast cancer only strikes older women, because of which younger women do not pay attention to its symptoms.
She is a strong supporter of this cause and wants to make women aware. Khan is also open to the idea of being associated with any group to help spread this awareness.
Said Khan, “I saw how difficult it is, and how early detection can save lives. Just the assumption that women will not get it in their youth and only later in life is proof enough of how much we need to help them be aware about it. Regular tests are very much necessary for all women. And this is what I want them to know. Hence, I would want to be associated with any group just so I can help spread awareness.”
