Nadia Jamil's best friend shaves own head to support her

Pakistan’s veteran actress Nadia Jamil recently took to social media to share that she has shaved her head post-chemotherapy as she is currently undergoing cancer treatment in the UK.

Taking to her Instagram and Twitter, Nadia shared more details over losing her hair and expressed gratitude to her best friend from the college of over 25 years.

“I met Rain at college and we decided we would be sisters for life,” the Damsaa star wrote.

“Today as I battle one of the worst days fighting chemotherapy, unable to eat or even lift my head to drink water, I cannot help smiling. I still have my amazing sister in my heart and in my life.”

Nadia went on to reveal how Rain shaved her head in solidarity. “Looking at her clear, deep, blue eyes I thank God for her love and friendship. For all the conversations and for everything we have been through in our separate lives. The grief, the joy. Here we are so many years later, survivors,” she continued.

“Without our hair, our faces shine out, nothing hidden and I must say I like what I see. Two sisters. Empowered. Loving, giving…with honesty, sincerity and strength in our faces.”

Nadia further adds, “I must say, I rather like the shape of it. People throw ideas at me of how I can hide it, scarves, hats, wigs –  when all I want to do is feel it under my hands and get to know my face and head better, the face and head I hid behind my mane of hair.”
