Not so long ago Sonali Bendre was a film star who had married a film producer and was enjoying her more than comfortable life with her group of friends. She was seen at social events, filmy parties, magazine covers and award nights. Just the way the rest of her community operates. But 2018 changed all that. They say adversity brings out the reality of who you are. And the way Sonali has handled the past one year is not just incredible but empowering to so many people around her. Transparent and honest: that’s been her mantra when it comes to communicating with her fans and the media. On women’s day, Bendre shared a number of pictures of all the women who empower her.In an Instagram post, Bendre talks about her tribe and the vibe they share. Women who have been with her all her life and continue to give her strength. Even as the Sarfarosh star gears up for another round of therapy to fight cancer, she looks positive and thanks her many friends and members of the family.
