New Delhi: Sonali Bendre, who was diagnosed with a high-grade cancer earlier in July, is in New York undergoing medical treatment. Sonali Bendre’s sister-in-law Shrishti Behl opened up about how the actress is doing at the moment and told Spotboye, “She is staying strong.”
While we always knew that she is a fighter, it is definitely re-assuring to learn about her health. Earlier, Shrishti said, “Sonali will definitely prevail. She will be back. We are all very grateful for the outpouring of love.”
Sonali is currently at the Big Apple with her family including husband Goldie Behl and son Ranveer, who recently shared a happy picture of himself on his Instagram account from New York’s Central Park.
Sonali Bendre has been posting accounts of her health keeping her fans updated about her condition on social media platforms. She revealed that she’d been diagnosed with metastatic cancer in the first week of July. Few weeks later, she shared the video of herself getting a haircut.
In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone. Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook… literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine – it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process… I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞 Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!

Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.
