Actor shares transformation on Cancer Survivors’ Day

Entertainment Desk June 07, 2021

Actor Sonali Bendre shared a photo of herself from the time she was battling cancer on World Cancer Survivors’ Day to mark her victory over the disease.

Taking to her Instagram on June 6, the actor said she won’t let the illness define who she is. The transformation was a sight for sore eyes as Sonali sported her now short and chic hairstyle with utter grace.

“How time flies...” she penned. “Today, when I look back, I see strength, I see weakness but most importantly, I see the will to not let the C word define how my life will be after it,” shared the Bollywood actor. “You create the life you choose. Your journey is what you make of it. So remember to take #OneDayAtATime and to #SwitchOnTheSunshine,” concluded the Sarfarosh star.

Sonali was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in 2018 and was treated for it in New York, according to News18. She battled the disease and emerged victorious.

The Kal Ho Naa Ho actor had opened up about being diagnosed with cancer with India Today earlier. She also detailed her battle with the disease. “We are in the age where information is available at our fingertips. I didn't want any negativity surrounding me because my son was just 12. What was happening was strange and scary enough… I didn't want to add to that. I didn't want my family members getting some strange WhatsApp messages and being frightened about it. So the idea was to put out what is happening by so that there is no speculation.”
