Exclusive – Aishwarya Sakhuja opens up about her mother-in-law’s battle with Cancer: She taught me to be there for my family and not take them for granted


Television’s bubbly girl next door and the quintessential bahu aka Toasty, from Saas Bina Sasural is reeling with a major personal loss as her mother-in-law lost the battle to cancer last month. In one of her interviews Aishwarya had spoken at length about the mental distress as a loved one was fighting a life threatening disease and the actress spent the last month practically in and out of hospitals as her mother-in-law fought for her life.

Aishwarya finally opened up about her mother-in-law’s struggle with cancer, “When cancer struck her, she didn’t wince or frown upon the news. She’d say tum log ho na, I know ab jo hoga, sab achha hoga. The faith she had in her children and family was not something I’ve witnessed earlier. She believed that God has designed a life for each one of us. Faith is all she had. She would instead calm me down, she’d say Jane de, zyada matt soch. She battled with two primary cancers in her body but she never victimised herself. All she wanted was Limca and Maggi. Her first question to her Doctor after she came out of her surgery was, whether she could drink Limca, which is so unreal because I vividly remember as a child when I’d undergone an extensive heart surgery, I wanted Limca too. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones.”

Remembering some of their fond memories, Aishwarya recalls, “She insisted on celebrating every occasion together, that would sometimes get to me but I’m so happy that she did that because now when I look back, I would not want to spend any of those without her by my side.”

Aishwarya got overnight fame with her character that was loved far and wide as Toasty, the perfect bahu of the house with no reel life saas, as the only woman in a house full of men. After her mother-in-law’s passing away, Aishwarya spoke about the emptiness she feels, “She loved each one of us with so much heart that her passing away has all left us empty.”

“Every Karwa Chauth she would make Gobhi paranthas for everyone at 4am although it was just the two of us fasting. She was a beautiful soul and she believed in the goodness of people. Although I wasn’t in touch with so many of my friends, but she would make it a point to wish them on every important occasion of their lives. Mujhe apne doston ki khabar unse milti thi,” Aiswarya remembers.

Reeling with the loss, Aishwarya shares, “She taught me to be there for my family and not take any of them for granted. With her gone we have become stronger as a unit and I hope I can make her proud one day.”
