Mamta has survived cancer. She suffered a recurrence of cancer a few years ago. In an interview with TOI in 2014, she stated, "I can't claim I've been as resilient as I was when I first had the sickness. I was the type of person who never bothered about anything. But I was terrified for the first time in my life. Being positive is simple to say. But this time, I thought it was OK to be afraid, to be human."
