It seems the fight with high grade cancer is still not completely over for actor Sonali Bendre, who had returned home a few weeks ago after undergoing treatment in New York. The actor shared a new picture of herself while comfortably dressed in cotton pyjamas and with a drip in her hand and flashing her magical smile to the camera.
Sonali shared the picture with the caption, “Another kind of outfit and another kind of accessory… just a small pit stop from the roller coaster we call life! Back home and back to #MyNewNormal #OneDayAtATime #SwitchOnTheSunshine.”
Her friends have been a constant pillar of support throught her struggle with cancer. Sussanne Khan reacted to her post with a heartfelt wish, “Sonzyyy you are the most amazing person I have met.. my warrior princess so so proud of you.” Udaan actor Ronit Roy commented on her post, “Wish you a lifetime of love joy and sunshine”
Many of her followers also showered her with good wishes and prayers. A user wrote, “you are a brave girl..I m in love wid your smile..look so vibrant and positive….bless you wid lots love and happiness..yesterday I was watching original humma hummma and I was just thinking tht you have come so far…we often think celebrities have a glam life wid all the luxuries but we forget that everything comes wid a price and you people have your own challenges…you have shown tremendous courage and it will inspire lot of people for sure.” Another commented, “Keep up that spirit , not so easy after all!” Applauding her strength, one more user wrote, “You’re showing people how to actually live it … Thank you.”
The actor was recently spotted at Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding reception in Mumbai. She had also featured in a special photo shoot for a fashion magazine proudly displaying scars received during cancer treatment. The actor had shared a picture from the shoot while inspiring her fans with the message, “Find your new normal”. She had returned to India in December for a “happy interval” and had mentioned in a post that her “fight is not yet over”.

The idea was almost preposterous. An almost bald head, barely any make-up and a huge scar was not the norm for @vogue. But, I guess that’s my new normal. Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities – but a candid conversation with the lovely ladies @priya_tanna and @anaitashroffadajania cleared my doubts. And before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality. The icing on the cake was the fact that I needed one-third of the time for hair and make-up😄. So I closed my eyes and jumped into it, full throttle, and this is the result. Thank you, @meghamahindru for telling my story; and thank you @ridburman for understanding my story and saying it so beautifully through your lens. If there’s a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to ‘Find your new normal’. It’s very liberating.
