Sonali Bendre is joined by best friends in New York as she fights cancer, they say we stand with you
Sussanne Khan on Friday shared a new picture of Sonali Bandre who has been undergoing treatment for a ‘high grade’ cancer. The best friends posed together in New York City’s Central Park and were joined by Gayatri Oberoi and another member of their gang.
The photo shows Sussanne, who appears to have taken it, while Sonali poses in the background, sporting her bald look. Sussanne wrote alongside the photo, “This is Us. Fight for you, Respect you, Include you, Encourage you, Need you, Deserve you, Stand by you.
Sonali had written about shaving her head during chemotherapy in a recent Instagram picture, which also included Sussanne and was taken by Sussanne’s ex-husband, Hrithik Roshan. “This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy,” she wrote. “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.
