'My [cancer] treatment is in process and I am getting better,' shares Nayla

Veteran TV actor Nayla Jaffri was said to be battling the last stages of ovarian cancer in media reports on Friday.

However, Nayla has come forward to clarify that those reports were a "bit exaggerated". In a message on Facebook shared by her son Jauhar Ali, Nayla informed her well-wishers that her treatment is in process and she is getting better.

She added that her chemotherapy has lowered her immunity, which is why it is inadvisable for her to meet people, but she thanked everyone for her support.

Exaggerated reports of Nayla's critical reports ran rampant on social media on Friday and Saturday. Famous personalities like Adnan Siddiquishared news of the actor's health on their Facebook pages which read: "B+ blood needed for Actress Nyla Jaffery. Admited in Liaquat National Hospital. Her cancer is in the last stage."

However, Liaquat National Hospital denied any truth to these reports, stating she is neither in need for blood nor is her cancer in the last stage.

The actor who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year has been receiving treatment at LNH since her diagnosis.

Nayla Jaffri is one of Pakistan's finest actors. She has worked in numerous TV plays and stage productions, earning many a fan by virtue of her acting skills.

Some of her famous works include Aa Mujh Ko Sulana, Desi Girls and Thodi Si Khushiyan.
