Ever since Sonali Bendre announced that she has been diagnosed with cancer, everyone is crushed by hearing this shocking revelation. As if we weren’t heartbroken enough, her statement on Twitter further worsened the pain.
She wrote, “Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, 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.”
It is being claimed that Sonali had been experiencing physical body pain from the past few weeks, but she never thought it could be related to or lead to a life-threatening disease like cancer. She is said to be in the last stage of cancer but her chances of survival are fair enough, as per the doctors. It just proves that life can lead you to any turn any time, no matter how shocking it gets. She has currently shifted to New York for her prompt treatment.
The web has been overflowing with ‘get well soon’ wishes for Sonali ever since, with numerous Bollywood famous personalities venturing forward to help Sonali during this adverse time. Akshay Kumar is said to be the first one to have raced to meet Sonali the moment he became acquainted with the fact that she is suffering from this life-threatening disease. Turns out he was in New York at this moment and considering Sonali too has moved to New York for her treatment, he couldn’t avoid meeting her personally and check on her health. Akshay is always giving us goals, this sweet gesture made by him did it again.
Akshay Kumar, when interviewed said that “I know that Sonali is a fighter. May God help bring her back in the best of health.” He called Sonali a fighter and encouraged her when the two actors met. Arjun Kapoor too joined in and wished Sonali to get well soon and take care. He tweeted to Sonali, “Fight that bastard Sonali don’t let it win !!!”
