Cancer-stricken Kirron Kher returns to India’s Got Talent with Shilpa Shetty and Badshah


Veteran actress and BJP MP Kirron Kher, who is undergoing treatment for cancer, is back as a judge for its new season on the sets of reality show India’s Got Talent.

Earlier this year, Kirron’s husband and actor Anupam Kher had informed that the actress has multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. However, with her treatment, she continued to work from home and now, the 69-year-old actress has started shooting for the upcoming season of India’s Got Talent, which she has been judging since the first season.

The new season of the show will see Kiran along with actresses Shilpa Shetty, Manoj Muntashir and rapper Badshah as judges. On Wednesday, Shilpa Shetty shared a BTS video from the sets and wrote: “BTS on IGT. Day one, first show with Kirron Kher and Badshah.” In the clip, Kirron Kher can be seen wearing a face shield.

In the clip, Shilpa Shetty can be seen having a fun conversation with Kirron Kher, asking the senior actress to adopt her so that she can inherit all her jewellery. In the clip, Shilpa can be heard saying, “I only come to see the jewelry on the shoot, after which Kirron Kher laughs and says, “Don’t be fooled.” The Dhadkan actress adds: “Main toh. I say, Sikander (Kiran Kher and Anupam Kher’s son Sikander) thoda paheenga ye (I am telling you, just adopt me, Sikander will not wear your jewellery).” Very funny, Shilpa Shetty.

But Kirron Kher is always ready to make a great comeback. She says: “If he has to wear it, he will probably wear it too… , my wife will wear it’.”

Earlier talking about the ninth season of the show, Kiran had told IANS, “India’s Got Talent has always been close to my heart. This is my 9th year with this iconic talent reality show, as a jury member. Coming back is an amazing experience. It feels like I am coming back home.”
