Sonali Bendre Revisits Hospital Where She Underwent Treatment For Cancer


New Delhi: Actress Sonali Bendre on Tuesday shared a video on Instagram recalling her cancer journey as she visited the hospital where she underwent treatment for cancer. In the video, we can see pictures of her and her husband Goldie Behl sitting on a chair in a hospital. She remembered the time when she used to sit on that chair during her cancer treatment.  

Her caption read, “This chair, this view, this exact same spot… 4 years later. From sheer terror to continued hope, so much has changed yet so much remains the same. It was unreal to sit there and see patients going in and I could see that I had been through a similar journey… saw the chemotherapy suite, the same waiting room, faces were different… I felt like telling the patients that there’s HOPE, and I am there on the other side and look at me today I have come in for a visit on the other side of the spectrum… It was, as you can guess, a very bittersweet, emotional day.  I stepped out, looked my son in the eye, with the sunshine on my face and thanked the universe for everything.

Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in 2018. She had announced the news on Twitter and had written: “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a 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.”  

The actress had updated about her battle with cancer on social media. She had also later revealed in the interviews that the doctors had told her that she had only 30 percent chance of surviving the disease.  

Sonali made her comeback in acting through ZEE5’s show ‘The Broken News’.
