Sonali Bendre Shocks Us All, Announcing She Has ‘High Grade’ Cancer!

By  | 

You haven’t seen a good police drama if you haven’t watched Sarfarosh. And you haven’t really experienced a fun, innocent love story, if you haven’t watched this movie. Sonali Bendre as the leading lady made this one of the most endearing movies of the 90s. So it came as a shocker when this actress, still very active on dance shows and the like, told us on Instagram and Twitter that she has been diagnosed with ‘high grade cancer.’

In her post, she says, “Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, 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.”

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.

The actress is getting treatment in New York. What does it mean that her cancer metastasised? According to cancer.net, ‘This means that the cancer cells can travel far from the original tumor and form new tumors when they settle and grow in a different part of the body.‘

Most of us were taken aback, and are pretty bummed out about this. A lot of celebrities like Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh and Sophie Choudhary have wished her a speedy recovery and strength.

We wish the actress a quick recovery. We can’t wait for you to bounce back.
