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. 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.
Our social media feed was filled with our favourite Bollywood stars sharing pictures of the festivities that come with Ganesh Chaturthi yesterday. Lord Ganesha arrived in Indian homes and everybody on social media took a note of it. Traditional aartis, eco-friendly Ganpati idols and celebs dressed in beautiful desi attires caught our attention. But while we couldn’t get enough of all these celeb pictures, Sonali Bendre’s post got us emotional. Sonali took to Twitter to share pictures of the celebration at her palatial abode with a special message.
#GaneshChaturthi has always been very very close to my heart. Missing the celebrations back home, but still feeling blessed. Have a happy one, filled with blessings, love and joy! pic.twitter.com/QCN359wf70

That message is truly touching, no?
A few months back, Sonali had announced that she was being diagnosed with cancer and is currently in New York for her treatment. We hope that the actress gets well soon.
