Missing Home: Sonali Bendre Shares Pictures Of Son Ranveer Praying To Bappa

Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre has been in the US since July, undergoing treatment for cancer. She announced her illness in an Instagram post and ever since, she has kept her fans and well-wishers apprised about her condition. Her positivity in the face of adversity is commendable. She’s taking one day at a time and turning on the sunshine, she writes on her Instagram.


She’s away from home this Ganesh Chaturthi while her family brings home a Ganpati. Sonali still feels blessed as she shares pictures of her son Ranveer and husband Goldie Behl worshipping the deity.





The festival has always been closer to her heart. Even last year, the actress wished her fans on her Instagram account and posted a picture of herself in a beautiful traditional outfit.

Sonali, who has been greatly admired in movies as Hum Saath Saath Hain and Major Saab, has talked about sharing the news of her illness with her son. The 13-year-old has become a source of strength and positivity in her life and he has handled the situation maturely. She is proud of her ‘not so little one’ and misses him terribly.


Even Sonali’s friends have rallied together to give her support. Her friends, Sussanne Khan, Gayatri Oberoi and Dia Mirza, have been rearranging their schedules to visit her in New York and call and message her so she never feels she’s alone.

From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him. As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do! I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for. It’s important to spend time with them and include them, rather than make them wait on the side-lines, not being told yet instinctively knowing everything. In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite. I’m spending time with Ranveer right now, while he’s on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me #SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other #OneDayAtATime

Sonali's husband Goldie Behl also thanked her fans on Twitter saying, “Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali. She is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively.”


The courageous actress has shared many photos and talked about her journey: getting treatment, chopping off her hair and finding a positive side to life.

"Vanity is my favourite sin." - Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony 😋), but who doesn't like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us... A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It's important to do what makes you happy, even if it's something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels.... All that white noise doesn't make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what's right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt... "Am I vain for wanting to look good?" As part of the entertainment industry, you're always expected to look good... Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I'm in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime 🙏🌞 Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.
