Veteran Actor Tanuja and Her Daughters Create Breast Cancer Awareness in Maharashtra

To commemorate a partnership between Orchids Breast Health Center and Siemens Healthcare for the cause of breast cancer awareness, veteran actress Tanuja along with her star daughters Kajol and Tanisha came together.

"With the increase in awareness, women in India are starting to understand the importance of getting tested. I think this brilliant technology is revolutionary step forward towards prevention," Tanisha said in a statement.
