She shared a photo of herself with her head tonsured and penned a strong note about her fight against cancer. She also revealed that her mother died at the age of 40 due to breast cancer.

Hamsa Nandini is an actress, model and dancer, who works in the Telugu film industry. She mainly appears in item numbers in popular Telugu films. The actress also played the role of a warrior princess in Anushka Shetty’s Rudhramadevi.
On December 20, Hamsa shared a long note explaining her battle against cancer and how she is embracing it. She wrote, “4 months ago, I felt a tiny lump in my breast. That very moment I knew that my life was never going to be the same. 18 years ago I had lost my mom to a dreadful disease and I had since lived under its dark shadow. I was scared. Within a couple of hours, I was at a mammography clinic getting the lump checked out. I was asked to immediately meet up with a surgical oncologist who suggested that I needed a biopsy. The biopsy confirmed all my fears and I was diagnosed with a Grade III Invasive Carcinoma (Breast Cancer) (sic).”
She has undergone nine cycles of chemotherapy and has seven more to go. In her note, she said that she made a few promises to herself. She wrote, “I will NOT let this disease Define My Life and that I will fight it with a Smile and Win. I will get back on screen Better & Stronger. I will tell my story so that I can help Educate & Inspire others. And, I will Consciously Celebrate Life & all it has to offer (sic).”
Hamsa also thanked everyone for their love during difficult times. She concluded the note saying, “I assure you that I am under the care of an exceptional team of doctors. This along with the unbridled support of my family, friends, and the film fraternity, I’m putting up a spirited fight with a dense dose of positivity and gratitude (sic).”
