Sonali Bendre has come out as a strong-willed and determined personality who would never let anything defeat her. Her fight with cancer is breaking all of us but she has managed to stay strong throughout. On her son Ranveer’s birthday on August 11, Sonali even made sure to post a heartwarming Message for her son. It read, “Ranveeeeer! My sun, my moon, my stars, my sky… Okay, maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic, but your 13th birthday deserves this. Wow, you’re a teenager now… Will need some time to wrap my head around that fact. I can’t tell you enough how proud I am of you… Your wit, your humour, your strength, your kindness, and even your mischief. Happy happy birthday, my not-so-little one. It’s the first one that we’re not together… I miss you terribly. Lots and lots of love always and forever…. biiiiig hug! @rockbehl”.
Before that, she even said how Ranveer has been a constant pillar of strength in her life. She wrote, , “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 well-being 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.”
Further, it read, “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”
And now, her son Ranveer has shared a beautiful picture with an even beautiful message to thank all the support that he and his family has received. He shared a picture of himself where he was surrounded by a ring of light. This ring of light indicated positivity. He shared the picture with a heartfelt message that read, “U all have created a ring of light all around me. Thanks to everyone for all the support you all have given me.” This is the picture that he had shared:
