A few hours back, Sonali Bendre- who is fighting cancer in New York- posted a beautiful picture 'Bald Is Beautiful' to wish her BFFs Sussanne Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Gayatri Joshi on Friendship Day with a long message about positivity and love.
Ever since she put out the picture, not just people from the film industry have been sending her messages but even her fans.
Alia Bhatt, Bipasha Basu, Ekta Kapoor, Patralekhaa, Divya Khosla Kumar, Shanoo Sharma, Neelam Kothari, Sophie Chaudry and many others have applauded the actress, and saluted her spirit for speaking out aloud.
Here’s what the Bollywood celebs have to say:
While sharing the picture, Sonali wished her friends on Friendship day...
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
