Sonali Bendre’s Sudden Revelation About Cancer Has Dismayed Fans


Sonali Bendre’s announcement of her being diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment, has saddened fans. Here’s wishing the cheerful actor strength and recovery!

Sonali Bendre has long been known as an expressive actor and model; she has worked in not just Hindi films but in multiple languages including in Telugu, Tamil, Marathi and Kannada films. Some of her noted films include include Sarfarosh, Hum Saath Saath Hain, and Diljale. She has worked with many of the leading actors of her time, including the four Khans of Bollywood (SRK, Salman, Aamir and Saif).

Apart from being an understated actor she is a graceful dancer as well. In 1996, when Micheal Jackson visited India, she welcomed him in style wearing a traditional Maharashtrian saree. In recent times she has been mainly seen on reality TV shows, such as Mission Sapne which aired on Colors in 2014 and she is currently judging India’s Best Dramebaaz which airs on Zee TV.

Sonali Bendre has brought a smile to many with her charming and outgoing personality; that’s why, like many fans, I was saddened to know that she is fighting a deadly disease.

Sonali Bendre has been diagnosed with a high-grade cancer and is in New York currently, undergoing treatment. The 43 year old star took to Twitter and Instagram to share this news yesterday.

Here’s what she wrote:

It is touching to see her courage and positive outlook when announcing the news – all of Bollywood is wishing her a speedy recovery and so am I. Just as with Irfan Khan suffering from Neuroendocrine tumour, this news came as a surprise to fans, but it is a reminder that indeed, life is fragile. As she says, it was something that they did not see coming, and indeed, that is what happens to most of us.

I wish for her recovery, and for strength and the presence of her loved ones to help her deal with this crisis!
