Notably, Gwen was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer over four years ago. Raising awareness about the fatal disease, Arjun shared a video on Twitter earlier this year. In it, he said, “Cancer is becoming more and more epidemic these days. My mother underwent a treatment for it and was cured. But 10 months later, cancer metastasized into her lungs and then with the help of my friend, we went to Champali Maud Foundation research centre in Lisbon.”

The video also had Gwen talk about her fight against cancer and how she was emerging victorious.

“It’s been a roller coaster ride for my Mom and the whole family. Then my friend @LalitKModi introduced us to the #Champalimaudfoundation eternally grateful to him, #CarloGreco and his wonderful team. Here is our story. I do hope it helps. ion.care,” he tweeted.
