Sonali Bendre, who was in New York for her cancer treatment, is now back in Mumbai. The actress was snapped at the airport earlier this week after a 6-month long stay in the US. Though her husband, Goldie Behl was always there by her side by there, she also had another person as a solid, throughout the 6 months. It was her sister Rupa Ranadive. Sonali took to Instagram to thank her and said that she is forever indebted, in an emotional post.

"An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too. – Pam Brown" Rupa Tai has been all this and more. She dropped everything in a heartbeat to be with me on this journey. She has been my rock…my person… Rupa Tai was involved in my journey from when I was diagnosed to the time I was deciding the course of treatment to packing her bags and coming with me to New York. She was there from get-go. Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to eat right or take my meds or an empathetic counselor alternating between giving advice and offering silent support when all I needed was to be alone with my thoughts. She was around. She was with me and by me, at all times. Sisters share a special relationship. We are literally an extension of each other. For bad days, her presence did the trick and the good days…well, it just got better! We have now returned home – to our respective families and lives, but us together in New York for those 6 months…I am forever indebted… #SwitchOnTheSunshine #OneDayAtATime @ranadiverupa

Rupa Tai, as Sonali calls her, left everything behind to stay by her sister’s side and was involved in her journey. “Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to eat right or take my meds or an empathetic counsellor alternating between giving advice and offering silent support when all I needed was to be alone with my thoughts. She was around. She was with me and by me, at all times,” wrote Sonali in her post.

Having a sister is definitely a blessing.
