Sonali Bendre’s announcement that she had been diagnosed with a ‘high-grade cancer’ that has metastised came as a shock. She is currently undergoing treatment for the same in New York, with her husband Goldie Behl and son Ranveer by her side.
Before her diagnosis, Sonali was one of the judges of the kids’ reality show India’s Best Dramebaaz. Her co-judge Vivek Oberoi revealed in an interview with an entertainment website that Sonali was in pain during the shoot.
“Sonali is a good friend of mine and her husband Goldie Behl was my classmate in school. This time around when we shooting for India’s Best Dramebaaz show, Sonali used to complain about suffering from pain in body and hands,” Vivek revealed, adding that he is constantly in touch with the actress and her husband through messages.
The Grand Masti actor added that Sonali was a “very brave and courageous woman”. “I am sure she will fight it out and win the battle. She will come out as a winner and stay fit,” he said.
Recently, Sonali took to Instagram to share how her 12-year-old son Ranveer has been a “source of strength and positivity” for her during this tough time. “In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do,” the 43-year-old actress wrote in her latest Instagram post.
