Bollywood’s one of the most beautiful and charming actress Sonali Bendre went through a bitter battle with cancer of advanced stage, very early in her life. After a long struggle and endearing battle, she has been pronounced cancer free. Sonali bendre finally spoke about her long and very painful experience with cancer. How she decided to give up the wig and embrace herself the way she was. Sonali appeared on Kareena Kapoor’s radio show.
In a teaser for the show that she shared on Instagram, Sonali is heard saying, “I really had my wig and everything planned and I will put it on. It was so awkward sitting in a wheelchair. I said, “You knowwhat? I don’t want to be in a wheelchair’. I tried and I don’t want it.”
Sonali talks about the entire process of the treatment. She had earlier said, that “I didn’t want to go to New York. It was my husband who wanted me to go. And I fought with him all through the flight. ‘Why are you doing this? We have good doctors here. Why are you taking me away?’ My home, my life… in three days, we literally just packed and left and, I don’t know, what was happening. I was like let’s, at least, speak to the doctors here and he was just quiet through the whole thing and focussed. In the day, he was organizing and, in the night, as New York was still awake; he was still organizing, so it went on day and night. Finally when I did get him, I actually cribbed about the whole thing, during our entire flight to New York. Through the flight, I cribbed; I was really venting my frustration.
Sonali had first opened up about her cancer diagnosis in July 2018 through her twitter feed. “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them,” she wrote on Twitter.
