Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre who is battling with cancer was in America for the treatment. However, she came back to India just few months back. Now Sonali has shared a picture of her sitting in a hospital, where she can be seen with a drip on her right hand. “Another kind of outfit and another kind of accessory… just a small pit stop from the roller coaster we call life! Back home and back to #MyNewNormal #OneDayAtATime #SwitchOnTheSunshine”, the actress wrote.
Sonali has been very vocal about her cancer and tries to motivate millions of people through her social media posts. Last year in July, Sonali took to Instagram to share the news of her illness. In her post, she wrote, “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”.

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.
Soon after the news the actress was praised for the bravery and her fans even showered with good wishes and prayers. A user wrote, “you are a brave girl..I m in love wid your smile..look so vibrant and positive….bless you wid lots love and happiness..yesterday I was watching original humma hummma and I was just thinking tht you have come so far…we often think celebrities have a glam life wid all the luxuries but we forget that everything comes wid a price and you people have your own challenges…you have shown tremendous courage and it will inspire lot of people for sure.” Another commented, “Keep up that spirit , not so easy after all!” Applauding her strength, one more user wrote, “You’re showing people how to actually live it … Thank you.”
