It has been a month since Sonali Bendre revealed to the world that she is suffering from high-grade cancer and it has metastasized. Since then, she is going under treatment in New York. Her husband Goldie Behl and son Ranveer Behl are staying with her to support her. Every now and then, the actress updates her fans with her health, life and the on-going treatment.
On Friendship Day yesterday, Sonali took to Instagram and posted a picture with her BFFs Sussane Khan and Gayatri Oberoi. In the picture, Sonali can be seen sporting a bald mane, which she is flaunting confidently. She wrote a heartfelt caption with the picture. It read: “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
