Actor Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing treatment for metastatic cancer in New York, recently took to Instagram to announce the new book for her book club members to read. In a post shared by her on Instagram, the veteran actor is seen sporting her bald look as she poses with the book, donning that million dollar smile of hers.
In the post shared on Friday, the actor wrote that her eyesight was doing ‘strange things’ due to chemotherapy and hence she took longer than usual to finish the book. She also revealed how she panicked for a bit but assured that ‘all is well’ now.
Needless to say, the actor has remained positive throughout her battle with the serious ailment and had a constant support from her family and friends. She recently attended Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower and put up an endearing post.
The actor is an active member on social media and often shares pictures of herself with Sussanne Khan and Swades actor Gayatri Joshi. On Friendships’ Day, the actor shared a picture of the trio posing on a New York street with Sonali donning her bald look with much elegance, yet again.

This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime... basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture... You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan
