South Indian actress Gauthami had to battle breast cancer and completely recovered thanks to her amazing will power and solid support from her family most notably her live-in partner actor Kamal Hassan. Gauthami, a mother of one (her daughter Subbu was born from her marriage to businessman Sandeep Bhatia) no longer is into mainstream acting but does work in Tamil serials and even hosted a talk show on Sun Tv. Kamal Hassan is all praise for Gautami and her grit, "It was painful. But all through I haven't cried -- at the most my eyes get misty -- but that's it. After my mom, she's the one who has taught me resilience, all over again. Something I hadn't felt the need for in the last many years."
