Sonali Bendre's husband Goldie Behl has revealed the actress is stable and is following her treatment without any complications
Bollywood filmmaker Goldie Behl tweeted on Thursday (2 August) thanking all fans and well-wishers for their love and support for his actress wife Sonali Bendre.
Sonali was diagnosed with metastatic cancer and is currently undergoing treatment for the same in New York.
This is a high-grade cancer which is not quite easy to recover from. It is the final stage of cancer.
In metastatic cancer, it is difficult to discover the point of origin of cancer. All these factors make metastatic cancer treatment difficult.
"Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali... She is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively," Behl tweeted.

In a statement released earlier, the actress said, "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... We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way."
In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone. Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook... literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine - it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process... I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞 Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!
Sonali has also been sharing every bit of her struggle with her fans back in India. She has provided updates right from the day she revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer to getting a hair cut to what it was like when she shared the news with her son Ranveer.
She even mentioned how she and her son are a source of strength for each other.
From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him. As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do! I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for. It’s important to spend time with them and include them, rather than make them wait on the side-lines, not being told yet instinctively knowing everything. In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite. I’m spending time with Ranveer right now, while he’s on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me #SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other #OneDayAtATime
Sonali's fans, well-wishers and all the people from Bollywood stand in support of the actress and are praying for her quick recovery.
