Sharing a happy picture of herself on Monday, she wrote in a long note, “Sometimes I feel it would be better if people could just look at your face and know that you’re not ok. But lone journeys are never like that. Only a traveller knows the blisters on his feet from walking or the soreness in his back from carrying his bags. Only a jilted lover knows the ache he feels in his heart…. Only a battle survivor knows the struggle he goes through to get by each day at a time.”
Earlier in April 2022, Chhavi revealed that she was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. In her latest post, she wrote, “It’s been 2 months since my breast cancer surgery and just like a mother, pregnant in the last few days, I’m getting impatient to feel ok, to feel normal, to be able to do the things I did before it all began, to be able to smile from within… tired of going back to bad days after seeing a few good ones… sick of not understanding what my own body can or cannot do.. exhausted of fighting… but I know there are some battles you can only fight alone.”
Actors Ayaz Khan and Karan V Grover, among others, reacted to Chhavi's post with heart emojis. A fan wrote, “Sending you positive vibes.” Another person wrote on Instagram, “More power to you.”
The actor is best known for shows such as Bandini and the YouTube series The Better Half. She is also the creator of web show, SIT.
