Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre left all her fans and other Bollywood starts shocked when she revealed in her Instagram post that she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastised.

She is currently undergoing treatment in New York.

In her Instagram post on 4th July, actress Sonali Bendre said that,

“Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with 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.

There is no better way to tackle this than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful.

I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.”

As soon as she posted this, many of her fan/followers started wishing her a speedy recovery.

She took her twitter to thank everyone for good wishes. In one of her twitter post, she mentioned that she is aiming at being fighting fit again.

In her reply to Anil Kapoor’s tweet, she mentioned how she misses being in India.

Her tweet reads, “Thank you my neighbour, missing our lovely street, hope to see you soon.”



Actress Sonali Bendre is truly a fighter and a woman of courage.

On 10th July, she shared a photo and video of hairdo. In the post, she quoted that she is grateful to those who have shared stories of their experience in dealing with cancer.

Read her full post here:

“In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.”

The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone.

Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook… literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine – it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process… I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞

Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!”

We send Sonali lots of strength and positive energy. Wishing her a speedy recovery.
