Popular actress, Chhavi Mittal had gone through one of the deadliest diseases, i.e., breast cancer surgery, in the recent past. But the mother of two has remained positive throughout her journey and always shown her bravest side. For the unversed, Chhavi Mittal is married to the love of her life, Mohit Hussein and they are blessed with two kids, a daughter, Areeza Hussain and a son, Arham Hussein. Talking about her breast cancer surgery, she also constantly updated her fans with minute details of the difficult phase. However, even at this stage of her life, she was trolled for having healthy breasts, showing her scars and many more. And every time, without paying any attention to them, she came out stronger.
In a candid conversation with RJ Siddharth Kanan, Chhavi Mittal opened up about people's harsh comments on her during the most difficult phase of her life- breast cancer surgery. She was asked to throw light on why she had once mentioned that her breasts her like a commodity and what her reaction was after facing huge trolling at this stage of her life. She revealed how one netizen had very harshly commented why her breasts weren't cut. So she also answered this properly by showing valid reasons that her case was somehow dissimilar from others. However, she also mentioned how people doubted her cancer because she didn't shed her hair or was seen smiling at her brightest. In her words:
"So i tell you, I don't know why people talk like this? Maybe it is ignorance. Maybe it is just ki unhe kis sawal ko kis tarah karna hai, kiss chij ko kiss tarah se kehte hai, wo chij jyada imp hai ki apne kya kaha. Aap buri baat bhi agar achche se bol jayenge toh bura nhi lagta hai lekin achchi baat bhi buri se bol jayenge toh bahut bura lagta hai. To mujhe aesa kisine pucha ki in crass language he or she asked social media pe ki 'isn't the breast supposed to be cut? like don't to just cut it and throw it out in cancer' and I had shared some bikini pictures so there was not much left to the imagination, her/his imagination ran wild and areey isko toh cancer huya hai, isko toh ye kaise. Uss comment se mujhe bahut sara pyaar bhi mila."

Along with the screengrabs of the comments, Chhavi had also penned a lengthy note in her caption. She was seen giving a befitting reply to trolls. Talking about how people are extremely insensitive towards celebrities, she mentioned that the netizens assume that the celebs are used to such hurtful comments. In the same note, Chhavi also explained that she had a lumpectomy, a surgery in which the doctors just remove the lump from the breast instead of the entire body part. Chhavi also mentioned that the process in which the entire breast is removed is called mastectomy, which happens only in severe cases of breast cancer. It was because of timely checkups that Chhavi managed to detect it before anything serious. However, it was still a painful phase for her, and she will never forget it for the rest of her life. An excerpt from Chhavi's note could be read as:
"This is a new life that I’m living and it’s not the same as the previous one. Its been 7 months and I still have emotional days where I cry about the discomfort that I am subjected to on a daily basis for no fault of mine."
On December 28, 2022, Chhavi had taken to her IG feed and shared two mesmerising pictures of herself flaunting her breast cancer surgery scars.

"This is what I earned this year. A new life. A better one. A stronger one. #breastcancersurvivor."
