The actor also thanked Priyanka Chopra for helping her with the new look
Actor Sonali Bendre sent her fans into shock when she broke the news that she had been diagnosed with ‘high grade’ cancer in July. “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, 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… I’m taking this battle head-on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me,” she had written.
The 43-year-old actor has been keeping her followers in the loop about her treatment. But her recent post has been the most touching where the actor spoke about trying her best to look her best in spite of the treatment. She quoted Al Pacino in the post saying 'Vanity is my favourite sin' and even thanked Priyanka Chopra for helping her get in touch with a great wig company.
"Vanity is my favourite sin." - Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony 😋), but who doesn't like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us... A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It's important to do what makes you happy, even if it's something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels.... All that white noise doesn't make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what's right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt... "Am I vain for wanting to look good?" As part of the entertainment industry, you're always expected to look good... Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I'm in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime 🙏🌞 Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.
Her husband, Goldie Behl, also thanked the actor's wellwishers on Twitter saying, “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.”
