World Cancer Day 2019: Sonali Bendre On Battling With Cancer, Says, “Even While The Chemo Was Going On, We Joked And Laughed”
As Sonali Bendre continues fighting metastatic cancer, we applaud her spirit to stay calm and positive through it all. Right from going bald to celebrating Diwali, Sonali has been following her daily routine, despite the painful chemo sessions. Now, as she is back in the city on a sabbatical, she did a brand shoot and even shared a picture of the same.

So, on World Cancer Day 2019, in an interview with Bombay Times, the actress speaks up on her trying times with the disease. She said, “I think humour is the best way to deal with it. I laughed through it, I laughed with it. And I continue to laugh at it. There is no other way to deal with it. I think I will change my vocabulary. I remember that post-surgery, I would sometimes walk around the hospital with my chemotherapy IV in my hand, because I was bored of lying down. My friends have some funny videos of me doing all that stuff. My hair had gone and I was constantly rubbing my head. I have one of those videos, where my friend is telling me that I am constantly rubbing my head, and I turn around and tell her that I am actually dancing to Tattad Tattad. They fell down laughing. Even while the chemo was going on, we would look at videos, crack jokes and laugh. I told myself, I am spending so much of money here, so I will treat it like a holiday in NY, with a little bit of chemos thrown in. That was my way of dealing with it.”

On getting back to work, she said, “I am definitely getting back to work; I want to work every day of my life now. I don’t know what I will do, so I am leaving that open. I have realised in the last six months that if your brain is working at a fast pace and your body can’t keep up with it, then it can get really frustrating.”

Well, we only pray for the best and can’t wait to see Sonali back to being fit and fine.
