Ms. Sonali Bendre confirmed her diagnosis of high-grade metastatic cancer on July 4, 2018, and is taking treatment in New York. An earlier victim to this type of cancer was Manisha Koirala, who has successfully recuperated now.
Metastatic cancer is a serious form of cancer as it easily spreads from one part of the body to the other. Metastasis, in medical terminology, means a type of cancer which spreads to different parts of the body from where it started. Metastasis is also a term used for metastatic cancer or stage 4 cancer.
Sonali Bendre began her career as a model, and after getting selected by the Star Dust Talent Search, she was groomed into an actress by Bollywood biggies. Later she joined the film fraternity and became an integral part of the Bollywood film industry. She has numerous films to her kitty, notable among them being Diljale, Bhai, Sarfarosh, Zakhm, Duplicate, Kadhalar Dhinam (Tamil film), Hum Saath-Saath Hain, Tera Mera Saath Rahen, and Anahat among others.
Apart from being an amazing actor, Ms. Bendre has also been a judge and host in many television shows such as Kya Masti Kya Dhoom, Indian Idol, Mr. & Mrs. Television, India’s Got Talent, Hindustan Ke Hunarbaaz, and India’s Best Dramebaaz, among others.
Sonali Bendre is determined to fight back and is taking the necessary treatment. Yet, it is extremely saddening to see our beloved actors and actresses falling victim to fatal diseases like cancer. Minutes after her announcement on the social media, industry friends and fans wished her a speedy recovery.
