Ever since Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre divulged that she had been diagnosed with a ‘high-grade cancer’, the entire country has wished her good health and been praying for her recovery. She is undergoing treatment in New York.
On Thursday night (August 2), Sonali’s husband Goldie Behl took to his Twitter handle to thank fans and well-wishers for their prayers. He tweeted: “Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali… she is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively.”

With her friends from the entertainment industry constantly sharing their prayers and wishes on social media, Sonali recently posted how their love helped her. “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.”
Many celebrities have sent their prayers to the couple and their family.
Love, positivity and strength!

Sonali has in the recent past shared pictures of her hair being chopped off with a heartwarming message.
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!
