Sonali Bendre is back home after spending quite a few months in New York battling cancer.
It was only a couple of months ago when Sonali Bendre took on to social media to reveal that she had been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized. Since then, Sonali has been in New York for her treatment.
However, Sonali is back and she shared the news on Instagram with an emotional post which read as follows:
“They say Distance makes the heart grow fonder. It sure does. But let’s never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realised I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it One Day At A Time. And now I am on my way back to where my heart is. It’s a feeling I cannot describe in words but I am going to try. Its the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I have had up until this moment. The fight is not yet over, but I am happy and looking forward to this happy interval. It’s time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I cannot wait to embrace and switch on the sunshine. And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight, we are diamonds taking shape.”
Sonali, best known for her role in ’90’s movies such as Sarfarosh, Diljale and Duplicate, is married to filmmaker Goldie Behl. The couple has a 13-year-old son Ranveer.
More power to you Sonali and welcome home.
