Shahid Kapoor spreads awareness on cancer


Bollywood celebrities and social causes go hand in hand. And recently Shahid Kapoor was spotted preaching about the importance of cancer awareness. The actor said, “It is important for people to know that cancer can happen to anyone. Most important thing to understand here is that if cancer is discovered earlier then it is 90 per cent curable. So when we already have the symptoms and have not been doing regular health check-ups then we are making the situation difficult for us. Also if it is detected earlier then the treatment for it is less expensive.” It must be noted that many Bollywood celebrities have had the dreaded disease, out of which quite a few have come out winning, most recent example is that of Manisha Koirala.
