A friend in need is a friend indeed. We have grown up listening to this saying all our lives but Sonali Bendre's friends are the ones actually showing us what it means. When Sonali announced through an Instagram post that she had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, it sent a shock wave through the entire country. It was something real, but so unbelievable at the same time.
Ever since the announcement, Sonali has only and only been a figure of positivity. She gives out positive vibes, and most importantly she believes that the best will happen always. It's heart-warming to see her belief and positivity.
When a person is sick, there are only two things that can actually make them feel better - the right treatment, obviously, and the love and support of their loved ones. And Sonali has both of them in abundance. She's currently undergoing treatment in New York, where her husband Goldie Behl is always by her side. Apart from Goldie, there are a few other people who make sure that Sonali has all the support she needs in these trying times. Those people are her best friends - Sussanne Khan and Gayatri Oberoi. They always make sure that they are around Sonali when she needs it. They go shopping with her, take walks in the park and just do everything that they would normally do together. Here's a picture Sussanne shared from their recent trip to the park:

On Friendship Day, Sonali had put up a picture of the three of them enjoying a lazy coffee with the most beautiful caption ever. Take a look:

This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime... basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture... You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan
We pray for Sonali's speedy recovery and also hope that all of us get friends like hers in our lives!
