Diagnosed with high grade cancer: Sonali

Social media became the bearer of bad news for Bollywood yet again this Wednesday.

After Irrfan Khan a couple of months ago, it was the turn of actor Sonali Bendre to come up with a statement about her health on her Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. In a post, she revealed that she had been diagnosed with high grade cancer that had metastasized. The diagnosis came after tests done for a niggling pain.

The 43-year-old actor stated that there was no better way to tackle this than to take swift and immediate action and that she was currently undergoing treatment in New York.

“Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball,” Ms. Bendre wrote, adding that, “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.”
