Sonali Bendre took to social media to reveal that she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer on July 4 (Wednesday). Even as she asserted that she will be fighting her battle with cancer head-on, with the support of her family members and loved ones, love and support for the Diljale actor poured in on social media, especially the micro-blogging site. Bendre, whose movies like Sarfrosh, Hum Saath-Saath Hain, Diljale, Zakhm, Duplicate, among many others garnered her critical acclaim and many fans across the world, is married to director Goldie Behl.
In a statement revealing the state of her health, Bendre stated ““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.”
This is her tweet, wherein she revealed the state of her health.

I have 3 patients cured of cancer in my family and have 2 more under treatment.More than the doctor and medical aid, killing it is by the willpower to overcome it.Also the effort to be cheerful throught the treatment session helps early discharge.
Wish you a speedy recovery 💙
