In this week's quota of shocking news, actress Sonali Bendra took to her social media handles to announce that she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer. Currently taking treatment at Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, New York. She has her family and relatives around her during the trying times. Her sister-in-law Srishti Arya talked to the media confirming the news. She said, “Yes, it happened suddenly. Sonali is a fighter. She will definitely prevail. She has a lot of positive energy. She will be back. We are all very grateful for the outpouring of love.”

On her social media post, Sonali wrote, “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. 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. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way.”

She added, “What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I've received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I'm taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.”
