Sonali Bendre shocked one and all when she had made a sudden announcement of her suffering from Cancer in 2018. The actress quickly dashed off to New York for the medical treatment of the deadly C. To keep her fans and friends updates, Sonali made sure to share pictures and videos from the NYC. After spending a few months, Sonali returned to the Bay with husband Goldie Behl and son, Ranveer. The actress soon began to face the camera and was seen on Neha Dhupia’s chat-show Vogue BFF season 2.
Sonali Bendre recently appeared on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show What Women Want and there she had tears in her eyes while speaking about her return to India post her cancer treatment. On the show when Kareena Kapoor Khan asked Sonali Bendre how difficult was it for her to step out of the house. Replying to Bebo, she said, When I landed, I remember I had my wig and everything planned and I’ll put it on. But by the end of the flight, I was so exhausted, and it was so awkward to be in a wheelchair. Then I said, ‘I don’t want to be in a wheelchair. I am tired and I don’t want a wig.’ Then I said, ‘Just chuck it. I am not going to wear it. This is what it is and now let me just go.” She then broke down while speaking about the paps at the airport.
In a choking voice, Sonali said, “I didn’t expect to be so much of press out there. But I knew it would be there. Then when I landed, I just walked out bald, it was hard. Because these are the people, you’ve seen through your work and your work has always been about your looks. But I must say, all the press, that was there, were so quiet and so gentle with me. I had not seen that side of paparazzi. It was quite surprising!”
Bendre further said, “Mushkil tab hui, jab baal nahi the. For the first time, when you put it on social media, you don’t want any gossip and speculation around it. Then we got such a huge response for it and you realize that people have been going through it and are not even sharing it with their families. But when I spoke about it I got so much love.” (ALSO READ: World Cancer Day: Sonali Bendre Shares An Empowering Video Message; Talks About Switching On The Sunshine)
