Sonali Bendre Behl has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer. The actress is currently undergoing treatment for the same in New York. Despite the deadly disease, the actress and her family is extremely optimistic and is determined to fight against it. The Sarfarosh actress has released an official statement about her condition on Instagram. Sonali is known for her roles in Sarfarosh, Kal Ho Naa Ho, Hum Saath Saath Hai among many others. It read, ” Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball.
I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasised, 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.”
We are really heartbroken to hear that the actress is detected with the disease after Irrfan Khan. Earlier this year, Irrfan Khan diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer earlier in March this year. The Piku actor is currently undergoing treatment in London for the same. We wish a speedy recovery to both the actors.
