The two actor-comedians had a fallout in a flight when they were flying back to Mumbai after wrapping up a show in Australia.
Actor Atul Parchure, renowned for his humor and timing on the popular television series The Kapil Sharma Show, has opened up about a life-altering revelation he received during a family trip to Australia. In an interview, Parchure shared the news that he was diagnosed with cancer while vacationing in Australia and New Zealand.
The actor recalled the harrowing experience, explaining that his health took a sudden turn for the worse during the trip. Nausea and a complete loss of appetite prompted him to seek medical attention. Unfortunately, Parchure’s journey to recovery was anything but smooth.
Initially seeking advice from doctors, Parchure expressed his disappointment at the misdiagnosis he received. The prescribed treatment not only failed to improve his condition but also exacerbated his health problems. As a consequence, his overall well-being started to deteriorate rapidly.
During his narration, Parchure disclosed that his inability to eat and persistent nausea cast a shadow over what should have been a joyous family vacation. Disappointed by the lack of progress with his initial treatment, he sought a second opinion from a different medical professional. This crucial decision led to a change in medication and the initiation of chemotherapy, which offered him a glimmer of hope.
Reflecting on the moment of his cancer diagnosis, Parchure shared the mixed emotions he experienced. As he sat face to face with the doctor, fear was palpable in the room. The news he received was devastating—there was a cancerous tumor approximately five centimeters in size lodged in his liver. Yet, amidst the darkness, a flicker of optimism emerged as the doctor reassured him that recovery was possible.
Parchure’s initial treatment took a dangerous turn, affecting his pancreas and exacerbating his condition. Debilitated and unable to perform simple tasks, he faced a disheartening wait of one and a half months as the medical team contemplated the risks and potential complications of surgery. The stark choices presented to him were grim: enduring years of jaundice and a weakened liver or risking his life altogether.
Determined to find a solution, Parchure decided to change doctors and seek appropriate medical care. Adjusting his medication and embarking on a rigorous chemotherapy regimen, he finally felt a glimmer of hope permeate through his body.
Atul Parchure, acclaimed for his comedic performances on TV shows and films such as Khatta Meetha and Bbuddah… Hoga Terra Baap, has embarked on an arduous journey to regain his health.
