Sonali Bendre has been receiving love from people all over the world after she announced that she’s battling an aggressive form of metastatic cancer. Today, the actress who’s currently undergoing treatment in New York, shared a picture of herself with her son, Ranveer and wrote a long post along with it.
Alongside the lovely
picture, Sonali penned her thoughts...
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
Not just fans, even people from the film industry have been sending messages for Sonali and Ranveer on the post. Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Sonam Kapoor, Patralekhaa, Divya Khosla Kumar, Shanoo Sharma, Dabboo Ratnani, Neelam Kothari, Sonal Chauhan, Sophie Chaudry, Maheep Kapoor and many others encouraged the actress, and hailed her spirit in their social media posts and comments.
Have a look:
