Not many are aware about the reason of actress Anita Kanwal remaining absent from the television scene for the past one and a half years. Last seen featuring in “Sasural Genda Phool”, Anita it seems was suffering from a rare and a serious health problem which forced her to take break and attend to it.
Anita was first diagnosed with fluid accumulation around her heart in November 2011, a problem which had remained undetected for quite a long period. As she underwent treatment for her problem which included intake of steroids, the actress started putting on weight to the extent of 11.5 kgs. Also at times the pain would be unbearable for Anita to take and it would subside after administering her with painkillers.
However Anita has managed to overcome her problems to quite a great extent due to her strong willpower and determination. Also the support by her family and her colleagues has been of immense help and has gone a long way in getting Anita back to normalcy. As of now Anita is eager to get back to her shows as soon as possible.
