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.
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.
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.
