Sonali Bendre's sister-in-law Shrishti Arya is out of the country but the latest pic of a smiling Ranveer Behl (Sonali and Goldie's son) made us leap with joy. It indicated that Sonali is definitely not giving up; our prayers for Sonali's recovery continue. So, we texted Shrishti who is always honest and forthcoming to every question.
The obvious question was: How is Sonali? Sonali was
diagnosed with metastatic cancer.
Pat came the reply: She is staying strong.
It requires great courage to stay strong in such
adversity of health. But Sonali has been a classic case in point of a true
Not too long ago, she posted pictures of herself sporting a new haircut.
And then, she had even posted how she broke the news about her ailment to Ranveer:
Here’s what the post read:
“From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him.
As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do!
I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for. It’s important to spend time with them and include them, rather than make them wait on the side-lines, not being told yet instinctively knowing everything. In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite.
I’m spending time with Ranveer right now, while he’s on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me #SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other #OneDayAtATime”
